Photo Gallery: Cheetham Hill Road, A People Panorama
Cheetham Hill Road in North Manchester is one of the most diverse areas in Britain, with almost half of residents speaking English as a second or other language. Around 150 different languages alone can be heard in this one address.
But what do the people who live, work and play here look like? What makes them different and what do they have in common? These are the questions being asked and answered in a thought-provoking new photographic exhibition – Cheetham Hill Road: A People Panorama commissioned by Manchester Jewish Museum where it opens from March 20, 2016.
Over the past three months, Manchester-based photographer Jan Chlebik has immersed himself in the local communities, businesses, places of worship and schools which make up the multi-cultural mecca that is Cheetham Hill Road. The result is 28 stunning, vibrant and eclectic panoramic images – featuring hundreds of people of all ages, walks of life and backgrounds – visually bringing to live and truly celebrating diversity.
