Black and white photograph of a railway yard in the industrial north of England in the late 1970s.
I took this photograph in the late 1970s. At the time I was working on a project documenting our relationship with our environment. The gentleman in the cloth cap is dwarfed by the concrete structure — the Westway — which rises behind and above him. But his steady and dignified gaze is in truth the strongest element of the scene.
