Andrew Brooks: Skyline Manchester
Bruntwood’s new flagship building, Neo, which is currently under development, will host Skyline Manchester, an exhibition of large scale artworks by acclaimed photographer and artist Andrew Brooks.
A one-night-only private view, this event is in partnership with Design Manchester, and includes imagery commissioned for our DM16 marketing campaign.
Skyline Manchester brings together newly commissioned photography and existing works that focus on the skyline and architecture of the city. With views from some of its most iconic buildings, including a view of Neo during its development, this is a unique collection that shows modern Manchester at its most dynamic.
Brooks captures these views in vivid detail. Each image is built digitally from up to two hundred separate photographs. Through this process, the complexity of the city is shown in all its detail and the light and colour is refined to give them an almost painterly atmosphere.
‘I feel incredibly lucky to get to visit these rooftops with such amazing views of Manchester. I aim to show how it felt to be up high, watching the city; from a single person rushing below, to huge new buildings rising amongst tower cranes.’
– Andrew Brooks
