The Bees of Greater Manchester

On May 22, 2017, an atrocious terrorist attack in Manchester claimed the lives of so many beautiful people.

I felt powerless to help, but desperate to do something.

Inspired by the bee-related street art by Qubek I decided to create a book to raise money for charity.

My quest to find and photograph the bees of Greater Manchester began.

100% of the profits from the sale of this book will go to The Manchester Memorial Fund

The Manchester Memorial Fund has been created by the Lord Mayor of Manchester's Charity Appeal Trust to establish a permanent memorial (or memorials) for the attack at Manchester Arena on 22 May 2017.  I have been liaising with the Lord Mayor's Charity office and have their full support in this fund raising venture. Visit the We Love Manchester Website for more information about the charity.

Bee Quest contains nearly 200 photographs documenting over 120 different bees throughout Greater Manchester; from bee hives on the Cathedral roof and Coats of Arms on historic buildings through to street art, tattoos and graffiti.
