Still Occupied was my first real attempt to photograph the urban landscape, in an extended study of the city of Kingston upon Hull, which was exhibited there in 1983. When I started photographing it around 1975, Hull was in the throes of a massive redevelopment, with many inner city areas being bull-dozed and instant slums being created on its outskirts. It was a process I had been involved in opposing politically in Hulme and Moss Side in Manchester in the previous decade, but as a visitor to Hull I simply took up my camera to record my feelings.
