Photo Gallery: A Day in the Life of Manchester
Modern-day Manchester has been captured in a 24-hour social experiment.
More than 30 professional and amateur Manchester-based photographers joined forces on April 1 to photograph the city and its people, creating a visual library of what Manchester means in 2017. The project, called A Day In The Life, documented the people and places that make Manchester tick, from 24-hour party people to Saturday shoppers; landmarks to hidden hideaways.
Led by award-winning street photographer Mark Waugh, the photographers generated 1,600 images from midnight to midnight, documenting the length and breadth of Manchester, from Canal Street to Rusholme, Old Trafford to Ancoats. The resulting images brought to life everything from politically charged social issues and colourful local communities to the alcohol-induced absurd.
