Flowing City

    Tingying Lin

London’s Soho can be a moveable feast that is full of the flows
of people, lights and vehicles, alongside various histories,
identities and cultures. In this series, I would like to capture
these flows of Soho with a symbolic meaning. In order to
capture the flowing city in an experimental way, I have deployed
the mapping process while photographing. I started my little
journey in Soho from Soho Square, and then continued onto
Greek Street, subsequently going straight down Old Compton
Street. In the end, I turned left to Wardour Street and got onto
Shaftesbury Avenue, then heading to Piccadilly Circus as the
final stop. With the movement of myself in the process of
topographic document, I can sense/map/capture the flows of
Soho simultaneously.
