Nothing To See Here explores the world of drug addiction in the northern English city of Bradford in West Yorkshire. The substance misusers here include a large group of entrenched long-term opiate (heroin) users, of which around 2000 use the city’s needle exchange program every year. The recently-outlawed “legal high” spice has gained an enormous foothold in Bradford, not just among heroin users but particularly with the homeless and those sleeping rough. This photography project is planned to be published in book form next year and will include images too disturbing to be published online. Further photographs can be seen at www.johnbolloten.co.uk
