Andrew Brooks

Andrew Brooks is a Manchester based photographer and currently has an exhibition at the Urbis, firstly these photographs are amazing, these images don't do them justice, they are so vibrant and on a much bigger scale, so if you get a chance to go see it, you must.

This really is one of the most amazing exhibitions i have been to, the photographs are so powerful and unbelievably vibrant. i was amazed how he got the effect, at first i thought a pin hole camera or film processing, but i later looked on his website and his creative process often results in capturing hundreds of images to create a complete work. Then, a meticulously developed sequence of cut, paste and rebuilding, moulding a new scene from his own vividly re-imagined viewpoint that is consistent, yet also a parallel with that of the perceived reality it represents.
