Black and white photography series celebrates Manchester's industrial heritage

The UK's northern city of Manchester is famed for its industrial heritage. After playing an integral role as the beating heart of the Industrial Revolution, the city still holds many reminders of the early 19th century.

From the steel curbs located in the Deansgate area, to the converted warehouses and factories – now mostly housing luxurious apartments, offices, hotels and restaurants – the city's ability to seamlessly integrate the new with the old secures Manchester simultaneously as both a hub of history and innovation.

Its streets have widely been documented by photographers and artists alike, with each body of work capturing a unique angle. This particular photography series by Taylor Connelly, entitled Mancunian Way, celebrates the city's constant reinvention alongside the preservation of its past. Key landmarks documented include Victoria Station and Ancoats.
