From the Archives: Fergus Jordan interview

Back in May, we spoke to Photography PhD student Fergus Jordan about his work and issues of lighting in our towns and cities.

"I can’t agree with a system whose main goal is surveillance, or to replace the eye of the police in the street. There needs to be more consideration about improving spaces for their communities, rather than a lighting system that is there for the removal of crime that hasn’t happened yet."
