Designed by Santiago Calatrava, the Oculus is a magnificent transit hub in downtown Manhattan at the World Trade Centre. Inspired by the concourse at Grand Central Station, also in Manhattan, the Oculus is a more modern experience which must surely bring glory to the every day commute.
This image is an enlarged contact sheet made from twelve separate photographs on medium format film over about twenty minutes. The subtle expansion of time allowed by the sequence of shots means I have been able to shoot the height of the action in all the foreground images emphasising the function of the space.
I personally print these works on a beautiful titanium lustre paper that I find perfect for their subtle tonality.
