Individual Communication - Baker Street Station

Commuters at Baker Street Station in communication. Each in communication, but not with each other. How often are we in our own world, maybe communicating across the globe, yet we do not even speak to the person sitting right by us.

Always and yet never really connected.

Award Winning Urban Landscape: Individual Communication

This photo won the Smithsonian Photo Competition in 2016. Being an International Award-Winning Photographer has created contacts for me across the globe, from the US to Australia.

The story behind the winning photograph. I was travelling across London with my camera just minding my own business. As I looked across at the other side of the platform at Baker Street, I saw a collection of people engrossed in their mobile phones.

Each person was positioned in the archway of one of the platform booths with light filtering down from above. Almost as if each person was entirely separate from each other, despite being located on the same platform at the same time.

Thinking that I would have to take a series of images and merge them to get one person in each archway I waited for a few moments.

As the very next train pulled away it revealled the image you see. Each archway was occupied, and even better there were other types of communication going on. Reading a book, a newspaper and even talking on the telephone. A one in a million urban landscape with a meaning.
