This image was produced as part of the Spirit of a Place Exhibition at Bury Art Museum in Greater Manchester, UK. I was involved in initiating the project with artist Lee Crocker and taking it through to fruition with other staff members including curator Kat Au. It was a remarkable collaboration that helped communities re-visit the high street and form new attachments beyond retail. This image holds the architectural DNA of an English northern town: Bury. It is representative of the English architectural styles that formed the basis of a typical high street from the Georgian period through to the modern day.
