After Nervi

with David Britch

... the once heroic road with its large spanning structures and tunnels that capture a now lost optimism ... its obsolescencein the face of the new pragmatic road offers a new opportunity for reflection. ... the road becomes a linear ruin, scattered with elements of the recycling process that normally are marginal or ignored ... in the way they are sculptures set in a modern ruin that is the road. ...

Procession - Jeremy Deller

I was very happy to be asked by Lesley Young of The Salford Restoration Project to contribute a photograph to the publication documenting the 2009 Procession organised by the artist Jeremy Deller as part of the Manchester International Festival

Jeremy signed the page featuring his initial sketch and my photograph of "The Last of the Industrial Revolution"

The 'Procession' website is here and the book can be purchased here. My post-event description can be found here.
