a backward glance

This portfolio comprises urban photographs made to appear timeless, so it’s possible to imagine that materially the same image could have been made many years ago. Paris is a favourite location for this type of photograph, as much of the old core of the city remains. Sadly few of these photographs are from the UK, and whilst I have vivid memories from my Newcastle childhood that I’d dearly like to have  photographed, virtually none of the scenes survived that childhood and I’m left to stare enviously at the work of the few with the foresight to walk those streets with a camera. Conversely cities like New York seem to have preserved their heritage rather better.
