The suburbs have always fascinated D J Roberts. More varied and surprising than you think, they are a breeding ground for fantasy and anticipation, for dreams fulfilled and dreams yet to be explored. And their mix of the aspirational, the enigmatic and the downright odd encourages a response more than usually conditioned by our state of mind, by what we have seen and experienced elsewhere.
