Lyndon Hayes arrived from a small town close to the Derbyshire border to study first in the bold environment of Brighton and then going on to obtain his MA at Central St Martins in the heart of London and thus can claim strong credentials as an informed observer recording what he calls the “every day.” It is this that interests him most and he seeks fond recognition from the viewer. “Oh, I know a café like that…” and, “My dad used to drink in a pub exactly like this one...” Often, he leans toward scenes that remind him of home, or at least that are never far from a northern working class street corner.
