Alone

I love photography. It has been a passion for around a decade now, it has become so fundamental to my life and at times in my youth unsure on what direction my life was taking I knew that somewhat photography would always play a vital part.

Using the cliché terms, photography has always been my creative outlet. In terms of this blog I will be building up a lot of product photography (hey, photographing my favourite trainers is a great pastime) but I also have a creative side, where I can express myself.

This project was one of those self explorative, expressive yet self indulgent projects. I moved from Newcastle Upon Tyne which is renowned for the overly friendly nature to ‘The Big Smoke’. I moved to London renowned for the fast paced and unfriendly atmosphere. Yet I loved it. The bright lights of Soho, the hussle and bussle of Carnaby Street, I was where I needed to be. I have gone back many times since leaving and always come back saying, “I could live there again”. If I ever do is another question, I am settled. 

The photography within this project stemmed from a line in a song. Jack’s Mannequin – Dark Blue, listen here. The line: Have you ever been alone in a crowded room. It was the realisation that I knew no one and it was a chance to start a fresh, yet I was alone in a crowded city. It’s human to feel alone.

The aim of this project wasn’t to show London in a bad light, I loved the city and the experiences around me. It was aimed to show signs of a busy life around an individual.

Does anyone image what life is unfolding outside of the room they occupy? I feel the answer is no. Until you are in a room you can’t leave.

When you drive a motorway or highway and imagine that thousands of other lives and stories are going on around you? Life exists underneath.
