Andrew Brooks & Adelle Stripe create a series of photographic works and poetry exploring the hidden forgotten and neglected spaces of Aberdeen. Seeking to unearth the history and personality of the city it would deliver a series of large scale photographs made in Brooks’ signature style and with poetry by Adelle Stripe intertwined with the images.

The Secret Cities project focuses on engaging local groups through tours, workshops and a collaborative gallery-standard exhibition. It provides a platform for co-authorship by bringing together aspects of urban exploration, cultural heritage, architecture and art.
Secret Cities is a new commission supported by Stories Stones and Bones via Heritage Lottery Fund Scotland.

The main Secret Cities exhibition can be found at Marischal College.
