Public Spaces

Public spaces are where people let down their guard, and where humanity is on show for all to see. I surreptitiously photograph people in public spaces when elements align to create a human tableau. They are travel pictures yet they do not identify the place by cultural or historical details as much as use their particulars to investigate a detached, disembodied slice of time. The detachment makes the familiar strange to us.
