I have chosen to embark on a project to photograph the sights of a commuter in his journey on Bus 12 along its entire service route. The whole idea is fuelled by the thirst to photograph with an urge of looking beyond. Capture the transient moment. Double the perspective – not only the fleeting nature of moment in front of the lens but as well as in front of our eyes , with the intentional progression on the road.
The public transport is a commonplace for commonfolks. It acts as a thread that binds the multi-lateral society, also in literal terms of the network of bus stops. I have a weird obsession with long bus rides- most of the time active as passive onlookers onto the world outside. It provides the perfect comfort of being reclusive and obscured enough to be intimate with the sights around.
Out of the hundreds shots captured, these were the final 12 selected by me with the guidance of my prof.
