Kevin Cummins took some of the most famous photographs in rock - but the lifelong City fan has also chronicled the Blues down the years.
Cummins, 57, who has won acclaim for exhibitions of his work all over the United Kingdom and in Europe, made sure City's final season at Maine Road would be remembered forever.
His book "We're Not Really Here" includes pictures taken over 12 months at Maine Road, the team's training ground at Carrington, the club offices and various supporters' clubs.
Cummins tracks the highs and lows of 2002-3, the last season that the Blues played at the famous ground that was City's home for 80 years before moving to the City of Manchester Stadium.
Kevin, who studied photography in Salford, worked for the New Musical Express for 25 years during which he took iconic images of rock's top bands, including covering the Stone Roses in paint.
A committed and knowledgeable City fan, he has also been a regular contributor to Manc magazine.
