Kids of the Estate: Day With Dan

Photographer, Tibyan Sanoh captures 8-year-old Droylsden boy, Daniel in a series capturing kids and teenagers from her home city, Manchester

Words by Tibyan Sanoh

Daniel (Dan the man) is an 8-year-old North Manc boy from Droylsden. I spent the day following the youngster about. He’s a typical boy's boy, but his soft side shows through as you spend more time with him. The lad has impeccable manners. He likes gaming and skateboarding, as well as annoying his two older sisters, Demi and Sophie. His prized possession is his rabbit collection.

As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.

Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.

As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
