"Man in the Street is part of my continuing exploration of decay and disorder through representations of male identity.
 
The human figures in this exhibition are details enlarged from Edwardian travel postcards. They show men both solitary and in groups. Each figure is alone in his thoughts and caught up in the drama of his daily life. They have few individual features, but a century ago they were real people as they passed into view at the moment of the camera's exposure.
 
Their tiny scale in the postcards, combined with the printers' Ben-Day dots, abstracts their shape and reduces their individuality. Scaled up in these exhibition prints the figures are beginning to dissolve into anonymity and formlessness."
