These photographs represent small but pregnant moments in a fictional urban narrative. People on, street corner, political podium, office, cafe, patisserie, hotel and train station. They invoke the nocturnal city life of Edward Hopper painting and the sexual tension of film noir. Lonely urbanites seemingly caught by covert surveillance technique.
