The Right Honourable Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn was in Manchester yesterday for the launch of the Labour election campaign. I caught up with the campaign bus in my home town of Wythenshawe.

David Cameron came here and someone waved an imaginary gun at him, cue a frenzy of demonising 'chavs' and hoodies all over the papers. Corbyn turns up, gets treated like a treated  hero and guess what? No one's bothered.

If only everywhere was like Wythenshawe, the people of Wythenshawe might stand half a chance...

Night at the Museum

A commission from Manchester Museum to document a recent evening event as part of the Adult Programme. The highlight for me was a cyanotype workshop by Angela Tait and Ian Clegg of ATIC. These days the UV tubes they use to expose the images are considered a Health & Safety concern, yet it wasn't long ago they were used in sunbeds!

 

It's well worth checking out the Museum Meets programme for upcoming evening social events where artists, scientists, film makers, writers and musicians animate the collections in special one-off performances.
