  • 1994 - 1995

    I went back to London to take some pictures on the Underground, for an assignment I was given on the Documentary Photography course at Newport. I was inspired by Bruce Davidson's Subway series, and as no-one at the time had produced a significant body of work in colour there, I decided this was the way to go. During the entire 3 months I shot it, I only got hassled once. And that was by a guy whom I didn't realise at the time was homeless. My one regret in photography is that I did not this pursue this project fully. I feel another 6 - 9 months and the work would have been a lot better. I briefly tried going back there in 2006 shooting with a digital camera, but it just wasn't the same. All the rolling stock looked completely different and I encountered people taking issue with my photographing them, even though I wasn't using a flash. Since then Bob Mazzer has produced a very fine book on the subject, which covered a far greater time frame as far back as the 1970's.
