While I was waiting for a connecting flight at Heathrow, I noticed the theatricality of little scenes being played out everywhere. For brief moments, travelers are involved in performances. Some are saying goodbye to friends and loved ones, some leaving for adventures, others returning home. There are tears of joy and sorrow. Displays of happiness, stress, boredom, love and anger. Hands reach out pleadingly for others or perhaps towards what lies ahead. I captured these scenarios as they were illuminated by rare bands of sunlight in Heathrow's Terminal 5. The images span three years.
