Particles in Transit

A busy railway station is a wonderful place for a disengaged observer of human activity. I visit to experience the architectural spaces but the human element cannot be ignored and I find my photographs incidentally record the transient presence of a minor multitude of human types. In the random flow of human particles, patterns emerge and disperse, compositions are formed and dissolved. This is the raw material for these much processed images. The initial photographs were taken in the dramatic internal spaces of Milano Centrale where the grandiose scale diminishes the human presence to sub-molecular proportions. The building resembles a stage set for a totalitarian operatic production in which the travellers form the chorus as they transmigrate across the arena.
