Artist Statement
Mike and I used to be frequent Camden Town market goers which had a vibrant music scene and in the 1980s the London punks would gather there on Saturdays and sit waiting for the tourists to photograph them.   I remember there was this shop in the corner called Cyberdog selling all manner of club-going gear.   Camden was mixed area of Bohemian artsy edgy with graffiti grimy slightly seedy undercurrent adjacent to the canal.
I hope I’ve captured it’s spirit.
