The city can be seen as a confusing place often perplexing new visitors with its unexplored street corners and unfamiliar features. ‘City Traces’ investigates this notion visually. Photographed within the city of Birmingham, these images could be of any street in any city where trees merge with street furniture, buildings appear to move into place like a puzzle and figures walk through passageways leaving traces of themselves behind.
A sequence of photographs taken on the streets of Birmingham city. Buildings look very different at night; uncovering a strange and altered world in contrast to the daytime. Public spaces like shopping centres, appartments, office blocks and streets are lit by the ethereal glow of street lighting radiating the ambience of the small hours.
The series explores the visual aesthetic of the silhouette within an urban landscape. The interaction between sunlight and moving figures takes place before us resulting in a wonderful array of shadows.
A Syrian girl studying in Birmingham stops to talk about the recent massacre that happened that morning in Homs before continuing her solo protest against the British government for non intervention. On Saturday 4th February 2012 more than 260 people were reported to have been killed as a result of Syrian government troops bombing the protest hub. Since the conflict began in March 2011 it is estimated at least 93,000 people have been killed. (1)
