-- Big City

This project is inspired by daily life in London. It traces my own movement through the metropolis, and acts as a dedication to Charles Dickens's 'Night Walks', which records his aimless strolls around the city. And though the series is meant to focus on London's vibrancy and constant mobility, it simultaneously exudes a feeling of isolation and a lingering sense of loneliness, usually finding expression in the faces of its youth.
