    They’re very vibrant and feel modern, particularly the ones of the teenagers.

    There’s always a balance with documentary portraiture between being something the subject(s) would want to see and something that tells a story. I don’t go for the Bruce Gilden style grotesque shots - I feel that it’s not only respectful to shoot someone like they would like to be seen, but it also tells you a lot about them and their situation.

    I was at Uni in the 'pool in the early '90s and really recognise the look of these photos. All the paint was peeling and the walls were graffiti covered.There was a lot of rubble around, lots of stuff getting demolished. It really felt like change was in the air. They'd done the Albert Dock, which seemed like a catalyst for the regeneration of the city centre that was tired and outdated.

    I've not been back in years but I'm told the city is completely different.
