Hong Kong Taxi at Night, 2012 - William Furniss Photography

Hong Kong Taxi at Night, 2012

The contact sheet traditionally was how we delivered our images for client selection when I first started in photography; the thing itself is very attractive to me and allows for many narrative and compositional possibilities, I was a winner of the International Photography Awards Film and Analogue Category in 2019 for this contact sheet body of work.

In Hong Kong the ratio of taxi per person is higher than anywhere else in the World. I first became interested in the freedom of choice inherent in taxis watching the Tom Hanks movie Splash, he uses one to drive 300 miles to Cape Cod on a whim. In my image I stay still and a stream of taxis pass by for me to photograph.

This is an archival pigment print on a beautiful baryta paper. Limited edition, signed and numbered on the back of the print. It is shipped in a tube.
