Transient figures

The blurring of passing people has proved an interesting challenge: to decide the right amount to anonymise people on private property, but still retain a degree of recognisability. I want to keep some character, to suggest who they are, what they look like, but with enough abstraction to allow sufficient scope for the viewer’s imagination. Images on the public street don’t have the same restrictions of privacy (in the U.K.), but I still prefer some blur to show movement, direction and temporality.IMG_0017_13det1.jpg
