During July of last year, I was asked to take photographs of the Treacle Market / Barnaby Festival in Macclesfield, Cheshire. This was an ongoing project where Make it Macclesfield and Cheshire East Council were working on something big for Macclesfield train station. The concept was to take photographs of landmarks / well known areas around Macclesfield for this project. These photographs were going to be later used for a display at the train station.
One of my photographs that I took, down the pedestrianised road Chestergate, was chosen to be used for this display. The project was set out as a number of posters which focused on aspects of Macclesfield, from the early days up until the present; to showcase the history and heritage of Macclesfield.
I am super proud that my work is currently being seen by thousands of people every single week. This was a wonderful sight to see in-person and is lovely that I have a small piece of history on those walls.
The station has also been kitted out with a new "Welcome to Macclesfield" sign along the outside of the footbridge.
Here is my photograph in the final piece which can be seen as you walk along the footbridge (I admit it's not the best work I've done - you can see that in my portfolio - but I'm still really proud of it).
