Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, and besides from finding my inspiration out in the nature, I sometimes find sites with great photography on the net. Private and Public is one such site, made by a fellow scandinavian, the danish Simon Høgsberg. All of the photographs in his “Private and public” project was taken of unsuspecting londoners.
To quote Simon:
All images are taken over a period of a year – from early summer 2001 to late Spring, 2002 – and apart from the portraits taken during the summer period, all pictures are taken from the same spot – 3 meters from the corner of Edgware Road and Oxford Street. None of the photographs have been set up but are all snapshots of pedestrians who happened to walk into the frame of the camera.
