Ed remarks: “This image is part of a large project I have been working on for some years about city life, and the place of people – particularly the workers – within it. I am very interested in combining high contrast, deep shadows and geometric patterns in the street scene with ambiguous human figures to produce images that hopefully resonate in a slightly different way from the street photographs people may have become familiar with in the past.”
