The Mancunian apocalypse

manc4.jpg

Now many smug southerners will tell you that once you go north of Oxford, the rest of the country looks like an apocalyptic wasteland.

They're wrong, obviously, but this collection of incredibly life-like paintings might seem more like photographs to many of them.

Artist James Chadderton has created an eerie vision of Manchester in the future where humans are nowhere to be seen. All that remains is a broken city.

If those pessimistic Mayans, and Roland Emmerich, are to be believed, this could be the scene in just over a year.

You can see more of his work here.
