There are four Pizza Express Restaurants in the city centre of Manchester and this photograph shows the nearest one to my flat. I have never actually eaten at the Peter Street Pizza Express but I am currently producing a serious of photographs around the Deansgate / Cross Street area of Manchester. Yesterday I was looking at food and the signage that goes with the various businesses. As I study the buildings and architecture around certain areas of the city I am seeing some fantastic details. Unfortunately these details I want to photograph will be very difficult to capture on camera.
After studying graphic design for nearly four years I constantly look at logos of all different types. The Pizza Express logo is very Art Nouveau and that is probably what made me look up and take this picture. That and the details of the brick work or tiles on the wall behind it.
