This work is part of a series called "Ghost Town", all showing parts of London where people have disappeared, and where nature takes an unfamiliar and eery appearance. In our urban and modern society, we are surrounded by constant communication, and cross other people's path constantly but somehow we can feel isolated and lonely. We have also lost contact with whom we really are, our true nature. This series of work explores this issue. But What can they be Doing Up there? is a print made with two plates, a photopolymer plate and an aquatint plate. I chose this technique to give the image an atemporal feel. The original photograph was taken in Primrose Hill, when I was walking toward the top of the park, where people gather to look at the London skyline.
