John Rylands Library - Manchester (2006) The images on this page are of an extension to the iconic John Rylands Library on Deansgate in Manchester.
The shoot was commissioned by the architects practice of Austin Smith Lord, who unfortunately, like many other prominent architectural companies closed during the height of the last recession.
The building was an extension to the iconic John Rylands Library on Deansgate in Manchester.

Particularly challenging was the footbridge linking the two structures which encompassed significantly different lighting levels which needed to be carefully controlled using multiple exposures and hand-held roving lighting to avoid dominance by one or the other.
