I like that the only colour comes from the two tfl staff sitting ‘in’ the bus. Lee doesn’t use post production so what you see is what he shot. I asked him about this great catch and he said “The ‘bus etching’ shot was quite interesting as I had taken numerous photographs on the day I travelled out of Victoria and as many again on my return. The shots taken on my return were better with the positioning of the gentlemen more satisfying with a real perception of them being on a bus but in a cartoon-like way…and with the added bonus of them being TFL workers!”
This photo of the week is by Walter Rothwell. He’s a member of the Street Photography London collective and I saw a presentation of their work at theprintspace on Tuesday. I’ll write more about that later but this is one of my favourites from Walter’s street photography panaramas, seen on his website.
I think his Hasselblad Xpan and love of shooting on film make his work stand out, but it’s more than that. He has an eye for a good shot and just recognises when a scene will be perfectly framed with the extra width of the Hasselblad or when his Nikon 28Ti will do the job too. Here are a few more to enjoy, or you can see more of his work at www.walterrothwell.com
It’s been on the wall for a few months now, my clunkydoodle. It’s called Robots and Bikers and I love it. I’d be interested to see one of those ‘Eye Tracker’ diagrams showing my eye journey. I’m sure there’s not a millimetre I haven’t scrutinised but I’m still finding new shapes I hadn’t noticed before.
