Year 3 Project: Part 1 – Reading Time

For this years photography project, I went with a street photography one, based around the idea of the flâneur. A flâneur was a stroller commonly found in Victorian London or the Parisian Arcades and has become synonymous with observing and documenting the urban environment. The initial idea was to explore ideas of isolation in the urban environment, but it became less about that and more about becoming a flâneur.

The first image (as are the next three) was taken in Glasgow and I like how these two are happily and comfortably reading instead of talking to each other. Lost in their own worlds for a moment.
