This is a photo book documenting the London rush hour and how it affects the traffic flow in the city. The book is also part of my research into the use of the photo book as a way of publishing photographic work. - Amy Rachel Bolland
I'm a 19 year old photography degree student from London, UK. Having always had an interest in all things creative, it was inevitable that I would eventually pick up a camera. Due to my constant need to create, lack of patience and need for perfection, I turned to photography. I've always had a longing to be able to paint masterpieces and draw fantastic things but I lack the patience needed to obtain such things. Photography has allowed me to express my ideas and creativity in a much shorter time frame.
At school I took IT and a vocational Art and Design course (computers are another of my main interests along with music), but it was at college where the idea of becoming a photographer first arose. After studying on a BTEC Interactive media course and getting a small taster of learning photography, I decided to take up AS Photography in my second year which I thoroughly enjoyed and excelled at. It was this enjoyment which led me to study a degree in photography.
