Voyeurs | Photographer: Dave Bush Photography

Voyeurs | Photographer:  Dave Bush Photography | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

We are all voyeurs this day in age. It is close to impossible not to watch people at the table next to us, check out the strangers sitting across from us on a train, or find a celebrity’s Instagram and scroll away. Hitchcock preceded, in a way, today’s compulsion for viewing others through a filter of some kind, via his film Rear Window. We can all still identify with James Stewart’s wounded photographer staring through a telephoto lens into the apartments across the way, and as movie-goers staring at the screen, we were implicit in the director’s game before we even had a chance to recognize its designs.

 

New York-based photographer Dave Bush’s photos of people in cars taps into this distant gaze, one that brings us “closer” to the subject but puts us slightly on edge. We know these are strangers and yet we cannot look away from their faces, for their expressions speak to a particularly familiar kind: those that we make when we think no one is watching. These images speak to one of our most basic impulses: watching people.

Voyeur lyder ikke så pænt. Men vi kigger da. Vi skal sgu da kigge !

Dogs in Cars | Photographer : Martin Usborne

Dogs in Cars | Photographer : Martin Usborne | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Martin Usborne lives in central London where he has his photographic studio. He started his photographic career after a number of years working as a creative director in children’s TV. Before that he studied psychology at Edinburgh University and then animation at Glasgow School of Art.

Of this work, MUTE: the silence of dogs in cars’, he writes, ‘I was once left in a car at a young age. I don’t know when or where or for how long, possibly at the age of four, perhaps outside Tesco’s, probably for fifteen minutes only. The details don’t matter. The point is that I wondered if anyone would come back. It seems trivial now but in a child’s mind it is possible to be alone forever. Around the same age I began to feel a deep affinity with animals – in particular their plight at the hands of humans. I remember watching TV and seeing footage of a dog being put in a plastic bag and being kicked. What appalled me most was that the dog could not speak back. It’s muteness terrified me. I should say that I was a well-loved child and never abandoned and yet it is clear that both these experiences arose from the same place deep inside me: a fear of being alone and unheard. Perhaps this is a fear we all share at some level, I am not sure. The images in this series explore that feeling, both in relation to myself and to animals in general.

‘When I started this project I knew the photos would be dark. What I didn’t expect was to see so many subtle reactions by the dogs: some sad, some expectant, some angry, some dejected. It was as if upon opening up a box of grey-coloured pencils I was surprised to see so many shades inside’.

Road Wallah | Photographer : Dougie Wallace

Road Wallah | Photographer : Dougie Wallace | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Dougie Wallace has chosen to show us the tram drivers, the rickshaw pullers, the yellow taxis, the passengers, the pedestrian and vehicular traffic that criss-crosses this teeming city along with a wide angle lens.

The buses, the most commonly used mode of transport, are run by government agencies and private operators are haphazard to say the least. Kolkata is the only Indian city with a tram network.


Dougie Wallace is a social documentary and street photographer, specializing in reportage and photo travelogues.
