A collaborative portrait of the city through photography and music. Over four years artist and musician Chris Butler and photographer Will Grundy travelled regularly between the UK and the vibrant German city. Their encounters and the new relationships they formed there inspired a 9 track album featuring a range of Manchester musicians and a 150 page photo book. The publication includes song lyrics and bilingual essays responding to the work.

The project exhibited at The Whitworth Art Gallery Manchester after launching to a sell out crowd in the Grand Hall of the gallery. Presenting themes of isoloation, voyeurism, escape and disorientation, We Are Willow selected works from the gallery’s collection that both evoked the experiences of Berlin and corresponded with the music and photography created there.
