Manchester born photographer Matthew Comer has won the opportunity of a lifetime becoming the first ever UK Route 66 Ambassador. After 9 weeks of campaigning Matthew was selected by the Chicago and Illinois Tourist Office. Following the nationwide search, Matthew has won the ultimate trip of a lifetime to Illinois where he will travel iconic Route 66, discovering all of the famous landmarks that have inspired movies, songs and popular literature over the last few decades.

Yet if you fancy seeing some of Matthew’s closer to home he has a range of exhibitions planned for the rest of the year at both Magma and Urban Outfitters.

It also got me thinking what about an exchange – US Ambassador for the M60 anyone?
