A fellow student (thank you Emma) reacted to the picture above when it was included within the Covert Exercise That Failed; following her comment I have reviewed the raw images and created this mini-series shown below.
Having recently read Marc Augé essay on supermodernity (1) I was attracted to the setting and the lone pedestrian as an example of Augé’s concepts of non-places (see here), and our relationship with the urban environment.
The pictures weren’t taken with the intent of showing them as a series so they lack consistent framing and have had just enough post production to create a contact sheet. I am intentionally leaving them as “rough” edits to reflect the method of capture (see here) and the mundane subject matter.
