This barrier between the building and the street is typical of a large number of London neighborhoods. It is the starting point for a dizzying perspective, extending our private lands, the place of our loves and affections, through the outside streets, a medium for socialization via the neighborhood, unexpected encounters, "chance".

This image is issued from my collection « City Instants ». My artistic choice is based on a framing taking a vertical, like here, or horizontal plane, as a vanishing point on a major surface, taking the viewer into a perspective with a strong depth of field.

Humanity has created cities and towns since Antiquity to gather there, to protect themselves, to find there commonly the facilities it needs, to exchange, to have fun there, in short to share there.

My images unearth sharing on every street corner; it is sometimes only about his idea or its evocation, even symbols.

The magic of the photo rests in this ability to freeze for eternity the unique and fleeting moment. So many moments, so many expressions gathered in a single framing. All these trajectories suddenly and for a short time combined. These thousand destinies then compose, through the eyes of the photographer, a great whole that exceeds everyone. Timeless rendering by black & white. This is how my City Instants are born.
