Postcards from the City: UK Cityscapes

Postcards from the City, UK Cityscapes is a project being developed by local-to-me photographer Mandy Charlton; Mandy plans to document and photograph all 69 cities of the United Kingdom and inspire them to make bold moves in their lives. No project like this has been undertaken, whilst you will find lists of UK cities and regional tourist information no one person has produced a book featuring all 69 cities of the United Kingdom.

Mandy is undertaking a Crowdfunding route to financing the project “this initial funding will get me to many of the cities and as art is produced city by city I forsee that interest will continue to grow which will enable me to continue this to fruition. At the end of the project there will be a glorious photo book produced with all of the 69 cityscapes in accompanied by some of the adventures I’ve happened upon along the way.”

As you know, I often blog about mental health, Mandy blogs about her own mental health and reason for undertaking this project here – I think she’s taking an incredible step with this project both for herself and as an inspiration to others, in making a donation to Mind, and as well in documenting our great country; I love how she’s captured Newcastle, get involved to bring her to your city next!

  1. Thanks for the lovely article Angela and thanks everyone for the supportive comments, it’s an epic project and it’s no mean feat to undertake but thanks to lovely people like you I am 100% I am going to achieve it.

    If you want to know anything more about it or you want to pre-order the book you can go to

  2. What a brilliant project to undertake – and a huge one too. Crowdsourcing is a great way to do it, I wish her the best of luck. I love photography projects, I’ve just started the alphabet photography project on the blog with a linky such good fun! Love this photo of Newcastle sounds like Mandy really has captured the essence of the city. Lovely post, thank you for sharing #whatsthestory

  3. Beautiful! I’ve always wanted to take a photo of my own country’s cityscapes. Just climb up a building and keep on clicking until I get the best shot :)

    • Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments, I’m happy to say that with 8 days to go I have nearly reached my funding target, I’m only 34% away, it would be great if people wanted to hop on board by pre-ordering the book and then you can all say that you really were part of it!
