Capture by A photoblog



by Doug Richards

'Lost' - as a series of photographs - is the result of spending a lot of time over the last four years wandering the streets of the Auckland CBD with my camera.

Looking back at the the photographs from this period, the most satisfying shots for me are graphical, with strong composition and including a human element, but always candid and unposed.

A friend commented that this series seems to her to be about alienation and loneliness. That’s valid for her, although I see it as more as people in harmony with their environment. ‘Lost’ in the experience but totally at home amongst the concrete, steel and glass.

What do you see?
