Guardian Cities

Ben Tallon takes a view of Manchester through his short comic for Guardian's Illustrated Cities series.

Ben's drawings are a series of thoughts and observations on the homeless problem in Manchester which is particularly bad at present. The reportage artworks are written and illustrated in response to both a day in the city and a cumulation of 6 years spent living in Manchester, he adds, "This is neither a political comment on homelessness or gentrification, but a story told around visible change."
