Combining fine art photography and place-writing to document the spirit, history and architecture of Old Granada Studios - the former home of ITV and a beacon of Manchester's cultural heritage - before the next stage in its development, Andrew Brooks and Hayley Flynn documented the site in the winter of 2016.
I commissioned this project for the developer, working with the artists to ensure that all stakeholders were well-represented without compromising the integrity of the work. The images were divided into themes explored through creative non-fiction or "field notes”.
The project was featured in the national press and will ultimately be made into a coffee-table book. Pictures can be viewed online at https://www.andrewbrooksartist.com/granadaland-granada-studios and canvas prints are displayed in the Old Granada Studios co-work space.
