Coming Soon: "Invisible In Passing", Photographs by Liam Sharp
As a photographer that photographs people, I am highly aware of the impact on the image I capture if the subject is aware they are being photographed. In my view this awareness changes everything. The image I see when approaching is gone as soon as the subject becomes aware that they are being photographed.
What I am trying to do in this series of street images, taken in New York, is to try to capture what I actually see and feel when I encounter my subjects on the street. I cut a hole in the side of a cell phone case, where I insert my DXO camera and walk the streets at a fast pace. I decide what I am going to photograph from a distance. As I pass the scene, without framing the shot, I try to capture what I have seen from a distance.
The subjects are not aware they are being photographed.
