East Manchester Project

East Manchester was once part of the industrial heartland of the UK, but sadly the area fell into decline from the late 1970s onward, which lead to factory closures from and people moving away from the area.

The catalyst that brought on the rebirth of a post industrial landscape in an area that once thrived on cotton, coal, steel and engineering, was the legacy from the 202 Commonwealth Games which was hosted at the City of Manchester Stadium that was built on a site that once occupied the Bradford Colliery.

This a selection of images from my project that I started in 2007
