A new exhibition exploring the evolving areas either side of the inner ring road that encircles Manchester city centre and parts of Salford is at The Modernist in Manchester.

Time Will Tell is a collection of nine of the most recent photographs from the ongoing Not Quite Light project by Simon Buckley. The focus of the work is the route from the now demolished Wellington pub in Salford, to the crumbling Bank of England at the top of Pollard Street in Manchester, following Regent Road over the Mancunian way and onto Great Ancoats Street. The two names of these places evoke notions of our Imperial past, and the great capital that has always fuelled these two cities.

The photographs featured are from the early stages of the current project, from areas around Ardwick, Hulme and Piccadilly.

Time Will Tell is on at The Modernist (58 Port Street, Manchester) until April 30, 2022. For more information, click here
