I first became interested in actually making images myself after i saw and exhibition of photographs by Samuel Coulthurst. They were of people going about their daily business at the street markets of Salford and Ancoats in Manchester and taken in the 1890′s.
As i looked at the people, all long since gone, they were somehow still alive. Frozen for ever in time by the camera.
From that moment onwards that is what i wanted to do. To preserve people for ever with a camera.
