On Photography

The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker…

Sherford, Taunton, Somerset, TA1

…reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno…

Victoria Park, Tower Hamlets, E3

…the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes.

West Stockwell Street, Dutch Quarter, Colchester, Essex, CO1

Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy…

The Faraday Effect, Trinity Buoy Wharf, Tower Hamlets, E14

…the flâneur finds the world ‘picturesque’.

Shoreditch High Street Station, Wheler Street, Tower Hamlets, E1

From Susan Sontag’s On Photography (1977)
