About the Work

The newly-established Museum of Photography Film and Television in Bradford (now the National Media Museum) commissioned a work about Bradford and asked that I use a Polaroid camera which they would provide.

I assumed they were expecting images of a subject most visiting photographers would probably choose - Bradford's rich ethnic mix. Instead I went to the roof of the new museum where the most striking intervention appeared to be the huge new roads cutting through its centre, making Bradford's buildings appear almost incidental.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
