Northern Quarter Film

Today I had a film developed that I took with a wide-angled lens on my Konica Minolta SLR, whilst expploring the Northern Quarter during the snow. I am intrigued by the knocked down or decaying buildings of this area and the hidden back alleys that are often ignored. These images are really useful in developing ideas for the new Unit X project based in the Northern Quarter. Our project is based upon the graffiti and artist groups around these streets and highlighting the back alleys, making unseen places exciting, waiting to be discovered. These pictures highlight the areas we want to base our work within and I'm really pleased with how they came out, considering it was the first time I had used the wide-angle lens.
