'If I were just curious, it would be very hard to say to someone, "I want to come to your house and have you talk to me and tell me the story of your life." I mean people are going to say, "You're crazy." Plus they're going to keep mighty guarded. But the camera is a kind of license. A lot of people, they want to be paid that much attention and that's a reasonable kind of attention to be paid...' Diane Arbus

I have been reading 'The art of looking sideways' by Alan Fletcher. I came back to the book after a few years, following a visit to Cube's current exhibition Alan Fletcher: Fifty years of graphic work (and play)

One of the quotes in the book, a Roman proverb, sums up the process I am applying to my new project, inManchesterandaround (working title),
'if you don't know where you are going...all roads lead there'
