About the Work

I took photographs in these countries in 1986. I was interested in a number of things, including western tourists. I therefore took an 'American Express Tour'. The works produced were as follows:
A Tibetan TV Store, A Tibetan Department Store, The Lhasa Carpet Factory, The Lhasa Reception Centre For Unorganised Tourists, Great Wall Graffiti, A Mosque In Kunming, Dawn In Canton, Bicyclists In Chengdu, The Buried Terracotta Army, and Two U.S. Tour Groups In Xian Museum Viewing One Another.

From 1996 to 2005 he was Director of the Kent Institute of Art and Design. In 2005 he resigned to concentrate full-time on his own work after joining the Kent and the Surrey Institutes of Art and Design to make the University for the Creative Arts.

″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″
