Looking In, Looking Out
A busy intersection in downtown Vancouver. People going this way and that, looking for friends or the next bus, or pausing for inner reflection, dropping their public guise for the moment it takes them to do so. These candid moments are largely overlooked by the swirling crowd around them, but they are the moments that interest me as a photographer.
The intersection of West Georgia and Granville Streets is an ideal location to make compelling candid photos. A wide range of behavior and dress is the norm; no one has to pretend to be richer or poorer, or happier or sadder, or saner or crazier than they are. My collection of photos captures people looking out to the world or in to themselves. I wonder, why are they at this intersection? What are they thinking? What are their stories? There are no answers but those we imagine for ourselves.
