That’s a funny question because I didn’t think I was photographing youth culture, I was just photographing my mates. I did that until I grew up and moved to London and from 25 onwards we all went our separate ways. All those experiences I would have had my camera on me but I can’t think of one in particular. The key is in the body language – they don’t care that I’m there. That’s got to be the pull of the photograph. It’s dawned on me that I’ve done something quite unique by accident! It’s quite tough to know what I think or feel about it – these talks are good for me as it gives me a bit more ownership to what I’ve done as I’m quite removed from it; it’s like somebody else did them, I’ve had to catch up with the work as I was 15 when I tool them!
