"Honestly you can wait all year for a photography show and then two come along at once" Last post Gill Moore, and now Andrew Brooks at The University of Salford. Here's the blurb:
"A University for the 21st Century"
A photographic exhibition telling ‘The University Story’.
Sat 17th May – Sun 17th August
Since its genesis in 1896 the University of Salford has sought to serve the needs of industry, commerce, the professions and society – locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.Innovative local photographer, Andrew Paul Brooks has created a series of images to reflect the University’s transformational change project called ‘Realising our Vision’. Through his own photography and his selection from the University archives, Andrew creates an experience not only of the sense of history but a vision of a university fit for the purpose of teaching, research and enterprise. “What marks us out in national and international arenas is our engagement with local and regional communities – this will remain core to our values as a University” – University of Salford.

Now having seen Andrew's work before this is sure to be a "Tour de Force" as they say in Chorlton........................................

At Salford Art Gallery, (next to Maxwell Building, The Cresant, Salford)
