In the domain of the globalised culture, physical and mental labour, are both subject to payment and therefore commodities.

Focusing on reproduction and its means, photography is employed to realistically capture the life in Manchester and the liberating forms that leisure takes, considered as the release of the human being from its professional roles. In these captures micro-incidents take place in the urban setting.

The subjects are physically absent and evident through their own micro- interventions in the public space during their ‘time off’. Bottles, drink cans, beer glasses, soccer balls merge with the social, communal space marking the areas where work roles seize to be and hallucinogenic or euphoric habits assist the quick shift of spirits.
