Andrew Brooks

Andrew Brooks is a Manchester-based photographer and digital artist. His images are constructions made from hundreds of photographs. This allows him to capture the light and atmosphere of a place and also pack large areas of detail into a single picture.

This particular set of images is from an ongoing project looking at hidden spaces within modern cities. Working with curator Andy Brydon and writer Hayley Flynn, Brooks searches for places such as Manchester's Albert Hall, an old Wesleyan Mission right in the heart of Manchester that now sits unused behind bolted doors and dusty windows.

This project has also gone beyond Manchester, with visits to the Netherlands, old industrial works in the outback of Australia and the towers above Edinburgh. To see more from this project visit Andrew Brooks's site: www.andrewbrooksphotography.com.
