Cuidado con el hueco // Please mind the gap (by Weilun Chong)

pleasemindthegap-13

Enmarcar a los transeúntes con la luz y las sombras es una técnica muy común en la fotografía de calle.
El fotógrafo con sede en Singapur Weilun Chong enmarca sus sujetos con algo que es un poco más concreto – literalmente. Su proyecto “Please Mind the Gap” representa retratos de los pasajeros del metro enmarcados en las huecos que se les dice que recuerden.

Conoces los huecos, ¿verdad? El pequeño espacio entre el andén del metro y el tren de metro que necesitas cruzar. Es sobre lo que las estaciones te advierten cuando te dicen “por favor recuerde el hueco”, y es la ventana por la que Chong ha estado observando vidas.

Chong visitó estaciones de metro en Singapur y Hong Kong, capturando rodajas de vida en los sistemas Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) de allí. Es un proyecto en curso que Chong ha estado trabajando durante los últimos tres años durante sus viajes diarios al trabajo.

Framing passersby with light and shadows is a pretty common technique in street photography.
Singapore-based photographer Weilun Chong frames his subjects with something that’s a little more concrete — literally. His “Please Mind the Gap” project features portraits of subway commuters framed in the gaps they’re told to mind.

You know the gaps, right? The little space between the subway platform and the subway train that you need to step across. It’s what stations warn you about when they tell you to “please mind the gap,” and it’s the window through which Chong has been observing lives.

Chong visited subway stations in Singapore and Hong Kong, capturing slices of life on the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) systems there. It’s an ongoing project that Chong has been working on for the past three years during his daily commutes.
