You studied photography at Manchester Polytechnic between 1970 and 72, what was this like for you?

In these days the idea of a college was to learn to be a photographer by becoming an assistant, so they taught us all the basic studio techniques and things like reciprocity failure. I quickly got fed up with this input and started working on my own projects. This meant I had to justify my work and this, I guess, was good practice for fighting for what I believed in.
