About the Work

The cities of Birmingham and Oxford are quite unlike one another, although both suffer sex gangs who prey on children.

The women in burkhas on the left are in Birmingham, the men below them were in Birmingham but are now in jail. The women on the right are professors in Oxford, the men below them were in Oxford but are now in jail. I don't know whether its good we live in different worlds.

″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″
