This is the street where I was brought up in Leeds, from the age of eleven until I left home at nineteen to study photography in London. We moved here from a nearby council estate after my parents had saved for years for a deposit to buy the house. Of course the mountains aren’t there, but being dragged across the Yorkshire Dales in horizontal rain with my sister, was a formative experience. The other stuff also arrived with the commission from the progressive rock band ‘Yes’ – for whom these two images were made, and from whence comes the title.
