One Hour Photo

For the last few years I have been taking photos during my lunch break. The project explores the urban environment surrounding my workplace. The limits of the area are determined by the distance I can cover on foot in this hour, and still get back to work on time.

I really enjoy the challenge of finding and making new images in the same area each day. It feels more like a game at times, the practice of trying to find meaningful images for myself is more important than the end results – which is pretty lucky as most days I am entirely unsuccessful!

It fascinates me that you can walk the same streets time and again and yet still find elements that surprise. I enjoy heading out each time without any expectation of what I’ll find or a fixed idea of what I’m looking for.
