Day in The Life – 24 hours in Manchester

Posted on by Hannah Waugh

Saturday April 1st at 12am marked the start of the 24 hours spent in Manchester for a social experiment inspired by the blog ‘Humans of New York’ but the idea of bringing something similar to Manchester came from a company based in Stockport called Cartridge Save.

Over 30 professional and amateur Manchester based photographers took to the streets to photograph our amazing city and the people within it, capturing Manchester in 2017.

Our very own Mark Waugh led the 24 hour experiment documenting Manchester in all its glory with the help of photographers across Manchester to picture the likes of Canal Street, Rusholme, Ancoats and Old Trafford.

Images that were captured throughout the 24 hour period captured many like booze fuelled party goers, beautiful and vivid communities and many political social issues Manchester has become known such as the increasing numbers of rough sleepers in the city.

The next stage of The Day in the Life project is for a local artist to be commissioned and generate artwork from every image taken over the 24 hours to remember this day and celebrate the brilliant idea and city behind it all.
