Manchester based Photographer David Gleave will be having his first solo Exhibition at Cass Art Manchester, Oldham street in February. It will be a retrospective of his first six years in photography from the first images he made of Vini Reilly at his house in Didsbury right up to the present day.

David was the guitar player with Manchester band The Naughty Boys who had a cult following 1978 – 1988 and as a consequence a lot of the images are of bands and musicians.

At first glance, Barker’s photographs appear to show sea creatures and corals suspended deep beneath the sea, but closer inspection reveals a more disturbing reality. From footballs to fishing nets, cotton buds to coffee cup lids, Barker highlights the everyday plastic items now commonplace in our oceans and seas.
