‘I don’t begin a project with an agenda,’ he has said. ‘It begins with a faint vision – one of those whispers on a breeze – that somehow gets a grip on me’
I recently gave a lecture on my work, my first since moving to the US.
After a brief history of how I got started, darkroom in my bedroom, wandering the streets of the north, printing for this lot and that etc, I touched on my Urban Sprawl series, the first project I shot in large format color.
It was all rather nostagic looking back on old work. So much so, I shot this image on the way home.
It may already be a classic....

A few folk have asked if I will be doing comparisson shots from my drought series, but it doesn't really work that way around as theres no drama..
Anyway, the drought is over and the sprinklers are back on as the heat rises. Truth is, no one really cares as long as they have grass..
