About the Book
LE1 is a book and body of photo-graphical work which was produced and developed throughout the year of 2013 - 2014 for PHVP 3409 module Major Project. In this book, reader will find all information about how project was developing and reaching current status. Inspired by Milton Rogovin, Daniel Meadows and Humans of New York, I made a decision to create a series of photographs which would consist of black and white portraits of strangers who I have met within LE1 postal address area in the centre of Leicester city. The reason for this body of work is that we see or encounter with so many people during the day and we tend to forget them all straight away, however some faces get stuck in our memories and you cannot remember where you have seen them. From my own experience and perspective of ordinary people, humans remember various strangers or people who look different and cannot be seen in the middle of mass of others so easily. This is the reason why I tried to capture such people which might get stuck in someone’s minds and show them from closer and that they are really not that strange at all. All images in this project are taken on different kind of Black & White films and various medium format cameras, developed, scanned and printed by the author.
