“Most of what is depicted here are things that quietly exist on streets, walls and roadsides in the city without attracting much attention; slightly deserted back alley sceneries and people that would certainly go unnoticed if they didn’t catch the eye of myself going about my daily business.”
"This book is compiled from photographs that I took over a period of eight months from the end of July last year to the end of March this year. It was early summer last year when I decided that I wanted to produce a book featuring only black-and-white photographs taken in portrait format, prior to this there was a period when nearly all my photographs, particularly those taken on the street, were snapshots employing landscape format."
