Smoker, Canary Wharf, 1995

from the series 'No Smoking'

December 2013

The ‘No Smoking’ series was the first project I shot after ‘Underground’ but for some reason it didn’t prove to be as successful from a personal point of view. From the beginning I was using flash, as in this picture but somehow I wasn’t very good technically at using it in mixed environments and I felt the subject matter didn’t lend itself to anything more than a dozen or so shots. I pretty much gave up after a few weeks but have returned to the subject in more recent years especially since the ban in England took effect since 2007.
