A photographer and poet travel to the four corners of Manchester, set up a makeshift studio and invite passers-by to be photographed. The result is Shooting the Breeze by Linda Chase and Len Grant, a slide show/poetry reading and also a small book.
The book itself can be ordered from www.blurb.com
A sample of Shooting the Breeze, the slide show/poetry reading is below. Photos from a performance can be seen here.

Shooting the Breeze was completed during the time Linda was Poet in Residence for the Didsbury Arts Festival. The first performance took place on 1 October 2010 as part of the festival.
