Takeaway for One

John Fowler

1–30 October

Mon–Sun 09:00–23:00

This project is a meditation on the theme of urban isolation and loneliness, photographed at a twilight time between day and night during winter 2016 in the centre of Brighton.

As a voyeur I inhabited a melancholic space in people’s lives between the public sphere of work or college and the private sphere of home.

Paradoxically I also felt separated from the subjects by the very environments I photographed despite the ‘open’ and ‘welcome’ signs.
