Alone in the Big City


These photographs are connected by the pervasive yet concealed juxtaposition that one may feel while lonely in a crowd, no better exemplified than by day-to-day interactions experienced on the street. The use of double-exposure allows me to create intimate relationships between strangers who will never meet despite operating in the same social domain, regardless of space or time. The result is often melancholy in nature, as though individuals abruptly gain awareness of their isolation and intimacy at once.
