9) Len Grant / Photographer

Our House: the exhibition

Our House is an exhibition and book project curated by Len Grant. It features photography by Len Grant, Shaw + Shaw, Liz Lock and Mishka Henner, and Charlie Burns.

‘It used to be called slum clearance, now it’s called regeneration. Tens of thousands of families across Britain are experiencing the largest re-housing programme since the 1960s. So what’s it like to be part of this brave new world? In Our House six photographers, including 15 year-old Charlie Burns, document stories of regeneration in Manchester, Salford, and Tameside.’

One wall of the exhibition space was covered with thousands of prints of terraced houses around Manchester, my homage to the quintessential northern house type.
