One of my favourite photographers of all time is Andrew Brooks, his unique photography style and attention to detail in his work is fascinating.
I first came across his work a few years ago when I visited an exhibition entitled: Reality Hack: Hidden Manchester at the Urbis(unfortunately the Urbis is no longer a hub for creatives). I was instantly drawn into his world and being able to view Manchester in a completely new light was incredible, also the way each photo was shown within a light-box just made the image much more exquisite.
Each image from this exhibition showcased a different view or "hidden" aspect of Manchester, for example the sewage tunnels and the Cathedral Steps both of which show a dusty, dirty, gritty environment but in such a beautiful way.
This exhibition completely threw my views of photography out of the water, not just the way they were shot but also the way they were presented. Who would have thought that a photo of an underground tunnel could be so intriguing?
