Photograph Location: Manchester | The United Kingdom

Photographer: Matthew Orlinski (Manchester, England) Registered
Matthew Orlinski is a PhD student from Manchester, England studying Computer Science. He started thinking seriously about photography when his grandad gave him an old Pentax Super-A for Christmas about 3 years ago, along with a box full of old photographs – but he has had no formal training. The washed out old pictures of the farm workers where his grandad worked struck a chord and he thought to himself “he could do that”. Once he moved to Manchester he thought he’d try to capture what it’s like to live here by taking his camera out into the city. Its a great place to take pictures and improve his skills with so much happening and so many diverse people.
