‘Street Photographer’s Manifesto’ – Available For Pre-Order

I’m in a book!

‘The Street Photographer’s Manifesto’ is now available for pre-order on Amazon right here.

It features a great bunch of Photographers and I’m proud to be included alongside them.

The book will be released in the USA in September and the UK in October.

Available in most good book shops and independent art-inclined stores. Waterstones, Magma, Tate London, Foyles etc.

My silly little photos on respectable book shelves. Who’da thunk it.

(If you’re not in the UK/USA and want the book, just give me a heads up and I’ll send one your way when I can)


Exhibition – ‘Best of Britain’

A heads up! I have 4 images in this exhibition celebrating all things British (and something to do with the Queen)

I hope to begin processing new work next week. I hate the gap between shooting + editing but I’ve had my fingers in so many pies that I haven’t had time to notice. As well as grant applications/exhibition prep, I’ve been working on a small edition of hand-make photo books. It’s very therapeutic and a nice way to end a project. Watch this space!

Hello friends,

You can find an interview with me/feature on my work in the new issue of Radiate Magazine. While I have no recollection of what I actually said, I can assure you that it’s packed with a variety of innovative and gorgeous street photography. Well worth the look.

I’ll be exhibiting a selection of my colour photographs at The Eigth Day in Manchester from February. Dates TBC.

Big thanks to Article Magazine for the following text:

“Quite often, street photography pays attention to extraordinary occurrences within a city. In contrast to the unusual and sometimes fantastical, Claire Atkinson manages to capture the more realistic, everyday perspective of the daily life of Manchester.

Atkinson’s ever-changing ‘Manc’ characters and backdrops show Manchester for its true self. The delightful personalities to be found on public transport, the caffeine-addicts through steamy café windows and the rushing feet of business along rainy pavements. We are not only given a taste of Manchester, but a rushing, blurry, reflection of Britain as a grumpy, ageing, multicultural nation.”
