Preface The North to me represents change. The change in economy is evident as the North moves from an industrial based economy such as coal mining, to service industries. This change is apparent in my Yorkshire surroundings, where I have noticed new brick replacing old, different types of businesses moving into the area and a loss of natural landscape. This is due to the demand for new houses to accommodate people moving into the area. During the making of this book, I was highly influenced by the works of Paul Graham, ‘Troubled Land’. This project uses subtle details in a average looking landscape to represent his theme and message of the war in Northern Ireland. I hoped to use this technique in my own work to make readers familiarise with the landscape but also recognise the small details.
