The upcoming Exhibition ‘REDS & K 1000 ‘at Manchester Central Library
Andrew Redmond is a volunteer with Volition at Manchester Cathedral. During the last couple of years, he has worked with Volition’s Artist in Residence Karin Albinsson, on a photography project. ‘Reds’ told Karin of the 1000 photos he had taken and lost six years ago as he went into prison, this is how the project ‘Reds & K 1000’ began.
They have met up regularly to retake the photos lost. Reds has spent most of his life in and out of institutions. During the project he has rebuilt his life. While Reds rediscover Manchester through connecting to graffiti and street art, Karin captures his stories.
The Exhibition includes 2500 photos of street art and graffiti created into 9 collages,
and a storyline where Andrew shares his story, to be understood. He wants people to know he is a man who cares about people and his city of Manchester, despite his past.
