With imagery shrouded mystery, today’s wonderful photo story comes from London-based artist, Toby Harvard. Shot with a combination of his trusted 35mm cameras and Kodak Ektar 100 film, his soft-focused photographs of lonely figures resonate a strange sense of intrigue and unbelievable calm.
Baked in soft tones and often juxtaposed with the luminescent glow of big city lights, his array of candid snapshots can be seen as a perfect social commentary of our time.
Subtle, intimate, and unobtrusive in his approach, Toby openly invites us to contemplate the actions and motives of these nameless strangers, and maybe in these rare and silent moments, we begin to question ours.
“Photography is an instinctive pursuit. I shoot what I find interesting. Often, the resulting photo is a horrendous mess. But every now and then you capture something intriguing.”
