. . . Project – The Stage

This project started by chance when I saw the potential after capturing a young lady standing behind a structural pillar at the rail Station, Bahnhof Zoo in central Berlin, because within just a short space of time she was gone, and been replaced by the next stranger.

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.

From “As You Like It” by William Shakespeare

Due to COVID I have unfortunately had to mothball this project, as the number of people allowed to loiter around the station, providing interesting vignettes of city life, has dropped to almost zero, but I hope to resurrect it if and when the pandemic next allows it.
