“To me, my car is a Rolls Royce. Other people may call it something else but to me, it’s a Rolls Royce. To me this is the centre of the earth…”

My Car is a Rolls Royce is a piece of work that looks at the condition of small town Britain and explores a once industrious region, now redundant and decaying, where both its people and environment try to retain their identity as a new Britain rises from the rubble of the old.

Saw your presentation at Format. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I spent early 90's in Brum and surrounds as a news agency photographer. Your images brought me back.

Will be adding to my next shopping list.

Good luck.
