Reflections 4

I've been riding around London buses at night, photographing the reflections of strangers as they appeared on the bus windows.

 

Something about these images haunts me. They're dark, indistinct, often distorted & blurred, but they really get to me. (You may have to tilt your monitor to see them, depending on your brightness settings and so on.)

 

None of these people knew they were being photographed – the camera was pointing at a bus window, not at them – and I didn't ask their permission, because these photographs felt to me like they went beyond the specifics of a given person in a given place. But if you happen to be one of these people, and you have objections to your image appearing here, just drop me a line.
