London Taxis, Trafalgar Square, 2003 - William Furniss Photography

London Taxis, Trafalgar Square, 2003

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.

The London Taxi is finest taxi in the World, having celebrated Hong Kong and New York taxis I was comissioned to do the same in London, and rightly so. 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.
