From Paul Graham’s first book The Great North Road (1983):
“In 1983 I started by picking up the threads of the old North Road, the cafes whose décor echoed a bygone era, the poppy fields in the mists of North Yorkshire, and the old car salesrooms whose signs still advertised classic English motors, long since demised.
I photographed these together with the modern housing, power stations and commuter trains of today. Finally I took as honest and open portraits as I could of the people who work, travel, or live on the road – those who support it, and whom it supports.”
