MANNING, ADRIAN Born 1965 in England, Adrian is an art-photography graduate exploring themes of entropy, human absence, materialism, emotional connection and life-cycle. The submission of four images from Cars of England was Sunday Times picture editor Russ O’Connell's 'Selector's choice' in his capacity as a judge for the Royal Photographic Society International Print Exhibition 159 (2016).Russ O’Connell: There were a series of images that stood out to me from all of the singular entries in the competition, and that was Adrian Manning’s series on abandoned cars. Proud possessions, once peoples pride & joy, have been left to decay in their final resting places, driveways become graves or monuments, that hold past motoring icons, a million miles away from the shiny ads you would have seen of them in the pages of magazines or billboards of yesteryear, nature reclaiming their bodies in coloured patterns of rust and mould.
