From David Gleave:
Hi my name is David Gleave. I am a photographer based in Manchester. I started seriously trying to make photographs in about April 2013. At first i started taking pictures of everything from landscapes, flowers, Bees but it soon became apparent that my subject was people.
I do a lot of portraits and i like to shoot candid street photos and live bands.
I first became interested in trying photography for myself after i saw an exhibition by a Manchester photographer Samuel Coulthurst. He took candid street photos in Manchester between 1880-1900. His photographs amazed me. He had somehow frozen people and time and made them immortal.
