Butlin's By The Sea 1972
A friend and fellow student at Manchester Polytechnic was Martin Parr with whom, on occasion, I teamed-up to make work. As our second year drew to a close we found ourselves in need of paid employment, money to see us through the summer. We also wanted to make a collaborative work of social documentation. By enrolling as 'walkie' photographers at Butlin's Filey in North Yorkshire, we were able to fulfil both objectives.
