Atmosphere by Sarah Amdur
“Atmosphere” was inspired by a project I did focusing on the identity – or loss of identity as it were, of people involved in London’s “rat race”. Travelling in London I began to notice that every passer by looked the same – suited and booted holding briefcases, consumed by their phones or tablet devices, and I wondered how anyone would be able to tell them apart. I went visited London’s Liverpool street station and photographed crowds of people emerging from the underground on their way to work, and in each of Atmosphere’s 3 parts – I have cut away their silhouettes, taking away their identities. The newspaper used in the background is specifically chosen by the content written on the pages, all relating to my thought process at the time this piece was made, and the influence society was having on people.
