By the Bus Stop by Richard Hooker

"Every few minutes of the day, all over the capital, people gather into small groups to share the same space and fleeting moment in time. Simply to wait for something routine and forgettable as a London bus."
Spent four years between 2001 and 2005, photographer Richard Hooker captured people waiting for their rides to arrive at various bus stops across London. All of these images were taken by an old Nikon F60 with Fujifilm X-TRA 400.
"In transient, with time to kill, and often amongst strangers, each collection of these individuals proves completely unique from the next. The way people take ownership of the space, how they congregate, is often better than anything an art director or photographer could ever deliberately replicate. Each collection provides a little insight into London's incredible diversity, how we relate to our surroundings, and each other."
