Flâneurism is a celebration of the unseen, hidden and uncelebrated. Exploring the cul-de-sacs and avenues of life, the aim is to join the dots between the coincidences and topologies of the world via successive photographic posts and physical printed photobooks.
Just as the Flâneur wanders the city on a course undefined by time or intent, these photographic connections take a lateral course, meandering and bridging cities far and wide. Journeying through the alleyways and pathways of the world, sometimes the connections are clear, other times it’s for the viewer to interpret themselves. However, the threads are always there, be it conceptually, emotionally or visually.
Flâneurism is an ongoing journey through the urban environment using photography as both medium and motivation.
Online since 2014 with a large archive of photography from locations as far and wide as Tokyo, Bogota and Moscow, the books launched in August 2015, with three publications from Athens, Moscow and the Heygate Estate in South London.
Each edition is based around a single location, city or theme with an underlying thread exploring the stories and history present within.
