Artist Quentin Budworth was one of eight local artists to receive a commission from Larkin25 to create a new artistic project inspired by the programme. Quentin took Larkin's poem Here as a starting point from which he created a series of images of contemporary Hull and East Riding that reflect the themes of Larkin's poem.

Quentin has worked closely with the poem and, using his local knowledge, travelled to the locations mentioned within it and to the subjects referred to in the project, finding visual images equivalent to key lines and phrases of the poem.
Past the poppies bluish neutral distance
Harsh named halt
Shining gull marked mud
Ships up streets

Industrial shadows
The slave museum
Stealing flat faced trollies
Beyond mortgaged half built edges
Unfenced exitance
