The result achieved was a cinematic style street photography but with a real intimate feel. I was photographing Londoners lost in their thoughts, not smiling or posing, simply walking and being their true self. And importantly I shot them very close. Beautiful people although not in a conventional way. The shallow depth of field helped isolate the subject and made the background less distracting. Avoiding having other people in the shot also was crucial.

I took a few shots here and there as I normally do but this time they curiously linked to one another through very similar aesthetic yet remaining individual and unique. All were shot from the same low angle, with a very wide aperture (f0.95 to f1.4), in black & white and somehow the focus was only (mainly) on one individual, often highlighting solitude and being lost in thoughts. I had a solid body of work in the making.
