These images beautifully capture simple scenes that can be seen everyday; people on their way to work, home, school, or just taking a walk around the city. What is really stunning about these images is how they are in black and white, yet still manage to capture every detail of the setting. Every flake of snow is clear yet not distracting to what is going on in the background. It is interesting how the photographer managed to position themselves in a way so the light from the street and cars was highlighting some things and casting shadows over other parts. What I especially like is how you can’t really see each person’s features, but certain aspects of them stand out more, like the smoke of the cigarette or the umbrella. It almost gives you a peak into each person without seeing their whole face or body.
