Its 2012........ Im in New York City at gone 1 AM.......... it's raining outside....... I can see Manhattan is still rolling......... goodness knows why I am not engaging with it......... instead Im up here just having a beer kicking back in my place on my own on a Sat night ....... staring at a whole pile of scans of old black and white prints from back in the day.......... it's like visiting another time zone ..........

Here is one I shot for The Observer up in Liverpool ............ in the distance you see stockpiles of coal having been imported from Poland ........... in the foreground you see young boys whose chances of getting asthma appeared to be massively increased by living in close proximity to the huge imported coal piles on the docks...........

This picture was shot in the 90's but has for me the vibe of a totally different era again ......... it looks to me like a kind of Bert Hardy thing from the 50's ......... way back before even I was even born........ hehehehe....... :-))
