I've just said the city is a Petri Dish. So many of the experimental ideas get mixed here, everyone seems to be up to some project or other. However, there's much that originated outside of the city.

It's not to say Manchester wasn't influential, or essential, in the process of success. Just that the city wasn't the place of origin, or everything to it.

The more I research 'Manchester firsts...' - things ascribed to Mcr, when actually borne outisde of its boundaries - the more I think the city's biggest talent is appropriation.

The word 'dawn' is from an Old English verb 'dagian': "to become day". It is the time that marks the beginning of twilight before sunrise.

Asked yesterday why I photograph the city at dawn, not dusk. There are many reasons, but one is the sense of mystery. At dusk, for instance, I don't look up at a building, where one single light maybe glowing, and wonder why someone is awake this time.
