Bus Shelter I
This is the first of a short series taken by the humble bus shelter that stands beside the harbour in my home town. It stems from looking at the work of Saul Leiter, one of my favourite photographers. Diane Arbus said “A photograph is a secret which reveals a secret to us. The more explicit it is, the less we understand,” and Saul Leiter’s work is often no more than a glimpse of his world, the kind of brief perception we get when turning the head as we cross the street or pass a news vendor, and he loved partly seen views through windows or between the people around him.
I hope that this series has its less explicit moments and that the images leave you wondering what’s going on…..
