About Trafalgar Square
“These photographs were taken during a trip to London where there was a white billboard in the Trafalgar Square; I stood in front of the billboard for four days and documented the people who walked in front of it. My work is about how the transient nature of being a bystander; a passenger, a tourist or a local person can flow from one type to another seamlessly. I believe there is certain universal truth in the moment of transformation from one role to another. Each person is alone in public while maintaining a small private space, a bubble if you will; that moves with him. I find these moments fascinating and intriguing. I continue to develop this series by going to different public squares to document people in those environments. I have since completed two other series: San Marco Square and Time Square.”
