Rise like lions after slumber…

Former TGWU Building Salford, Manchester. Have wanted to shoot this building ever since its reincarnation, mainly due to the changing colours of the LED’s at the base of the building. So tonight, on the way back from taking photos of the CEO of River Island; due in part to lack of funds and the fact I wasn’t ready for home, I walked along the Crescent and took some shots of this building that has so captured my imagination. I saw it a few weeks back when we had heavy fog sadly at the time hadn’t got the camera with me. Oh well, this will do ;-) No extra saturation, slight sharpening and only other PS work was cleaning a what seemed like a million dirty sensor spots :-( time for a Calumet clean.

Blurb about the building…

The ground floor glass frontage will be lit by colour changing LED lights, with a photographic installation on lettering suspended behind the glass. The lettering is a verse taken from Shelly’s poem ‘The Mask of Anarchy’ .Shelley wrote the poem in Italy in 1819 after he heard of the Peterloo Massacre but the chosen verse is a call for people to stand together against oppression.. The verse reads:

Rise like lions after slumber

In unvanquishable number-

Shake your chains to earth like dew

Which in sleep had fallen on you-

Ye are many – They are few
