Night in the city. Most people head home, to families, to the tube, to warm beds. Others go out. Recently, I’ve been out there myself, with the goal of capturing a few moments that tell a story or, even better, invite the viewer to supply one. Using fairly slow shutter speeds and making my exposures from a moving car produces images that are more gestures than clear depictions. I use panning to direct the viewer’s attention, making some things sharp at the expense of others. I try to walk the line between pure abstraction and explicit clarity, tempting the viewer to fill in the details.
