In 2005 I began working with the residents of Bright Street in Colne, Lancashire to document the e ects of a local government regeneration strategy (Housing Market Renewal Initiative) to demolish their homes and make way for gardens for the remaining residents. The people a ected by HMRI were our family and our friends, and the histories being erased were our histories.
As the street adjusted itself to a predetermined future, I spoke with the remaining residents, who openly shared their experiences with me.
