BY THE BUS STOP

london bus stops

Call it anthropology. Call it beautiful photography. Either way it’s an interesting look at London and its community. Between 2001 and 2005, Richard Hooker consistently took photographs of various bus stops throughout London. The result tells a fascinating city-story. As Richard describes it, “Every few minutes of the day, all over the capital, people gather into small groups to share the same space and fleeting moment in time. Simply to wait for something routine and forgettable as a London bus. In transient, with time to kill, and often amongst strangers, each collection of these individuals proves completely unique from the next. The way people take ownership of the space, how they congregate, is often better than anything an art director or photographer could ever deliberately replicate. Each collection provides a little insight into London’s incredible diversity, how we relate to our surroundings, and each other.” We posted a few images from the series below. Be sure to check them out, it’s really well done.
