Graphic designer Nathan Carter made these artworks
as part of Revealing Histories: Remembering Slavery,
a project examining the transatlantic slave trade
and the impact it has on contemporary life.

Carter worked with a group of Manchester residents
who looked at museum objects as a starting point.
The objects in the display case to the left
were selected because of their links to slavery.

Members of the group also did their own research,
uncovering facts, images, thoughts and feelings.
Carter used the group's work as inspiration,
developing a sketchbook of ideas
which shows his own process of discovery.
