A unique portrait celebrating the vibrancy and diversity of Norwich's Magdalen Street has been created by photographer Katherine Mager.
The 33-year-old, who lives in Magdalen Road with her partner Luke Abbott and three-year-old daughter Heather, has taken an array photos of the city street and the people who live and work there.
Later this month she is holding an exhibition of her work - called This Is The Place - at The Forum in Norwich.
'It came from living here really, walking up and down the street,' she said.
'I just wanted it to be a colourful, vibrant and positive representation of the street.'
She added: 'I know that Magdalen Street isn't perfect, but it's a wonderful lively street full of great cafes, world food, vintage and secondhand shops - a great place to explore.
'It's a real city street, sometimes it feels a bit like Brick Lane in Norwich.'

She said the street was a great subject for a photographer because there was so much to choose from.
'There are so many businesses and things to photograph that I couldn't photograph everything. I tried to pick places that I found interesting as an artist,' she said.
'It's a lively, real, vibrant street with lovely friendly people.'
Miss Mager - a graduate of Norwich University of the Arts - has previously done photography projects with the Border Community Record Label, Cinema City, Norwich Arts Centre and ShopArt Norwich.
She received an Arts Council England grant for her Magdalen Street project and has also been supported by Anglia Square and Norfolk County Council.
This Is The Place - which has been curated by Alice Lee - will be at The Forum, in Norwich, from August 11 until 21. Entry is free.
