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.

Reflections on life | Photographer Dougie Wallace

Reflections on life | Photographer Dougie Wallace | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Reflections On Life The faces of commuters in cities throughout the world glimpsed through the windows of trams at the moment of departure.

 

Reflections On Life is the result of an ongoing project that has led Wallace to record the daily commute in cities as diverse as Lisbon in Portugal and Alexandria in Egypt, as well as major Eastern European centres including Sarajevo, Ukraine and Albania.  Reflections On life is a series of photographs that shows the faces of passengers glimpsed through the windows of trams at the moment of departure.

 

As the subjects go about their lives, a reflection of their city, be it grand architecture or garish posters is captured on each traveller’s face.  Often the subject appears to be looking the viewer directly in the eye, their gaze intense, lost in thought as they prepare to leave.

 

Wallace says: “I became increasingly fascinated with the idea of reflections and the ability these have to change and make us reconsider our perceptions of everyday life.”
