Manchester Graffiti in Northern Quarter

These pictures of Manchester graffiti were taken in March 2009, on my way back from a one-day trip to Southport. Northern Quarter has long been a favourite among Mancunians for its inimitable combination of boho chic, indie music and fashion, where bohemians from the art and techie scene were mixing with working class folks who gathered closer to the Big Issue North building.
Stevenson Square where these graffiti were adorning facades and subways is a very cinematic place, in my opinion. I could easily shoot a film there, a kind of psychedelic/Surrealist story. My camera would delve deep into lanes and look inquisitively towards Ancoats, while standing at the top of Newton St.
I am sure you can tell where I’d love to have a walk right now…
