For months, almost daily, I took pictures with my mobile phone of my commute to work. Some of them are published on my Instagram account. I wanted to have a recollection of the views, always the same but always changing.
The project started in July 2016 and finished in June 2017.
Around March I lost a few pictures, while January and February weren’t the most prolific months.
Focussing on one project for an entire year – and limiting it with the use of the phone camera only – has proven difficult to me. Could be a coincidence, but at some point I lost interest in it, and tried to bring back my photography enthusiasm by pointing my lens to the small details around me.
Having started working for a company in Cambridge in July, and commuting every day with my bicycle, I saw the opportunity to take pictures.
Bringing a camera with me was never the best solution, therefore I relied on my iPhone. For months, almost daily, I published photos of my commute on my Instagram account, tagging them #mycommute and #onmybicycle.
Same views, different times of day, different seasons. Actually, I never stopped taking pictures, so this has become an ongoing project.
