Pete in Pattaya, Thailand. I was looking out in Laem Chabang and there he was on the quayside. Saluting and attracting the attention of a security detail. He's got a Super-8 movie camera in his hand so we could film a meetup of the Hackney High-rise Possie (I just made that name up). We lived in tower block estates in East London, during the 80s and early 90s. The artist Rachel Whiteread is famous for photographing them, but the real performance art was living there.

Holly Street Voids Tom Hunter - These photographs were taken on the Holly Street council estate, Hackney, East London in 1998. They show the 'voids' after the residents have left, just before three of the four tower blocks on the estate were blown up.
