Private and Public is a collection of candid photographs of London pedestrians, taken over the course of a year and grouped by season. All of the photos were taken on the same 30-meter stretch of sidewalk. Although they were taken in a public place, they are intensely personal, and I’m glad I’m not in any of them.
Wait a minute. I just remembered an afternoon when I was walking across campus at UC Santa Cruz, near McHenry Library, when I suddenly noticed a woman taking a picture of me. She was standing by the side of a well-trafficked path, so I’m sure I wasn’t the only person she photographed. Still, I may already have wound up as part of someone else’s art project. Crud.
