In this beautiful time-lapse video of London’s Canary Wharf depicting the frenetic activity in the city’s modern business district, one observes the contrast between the rolling mid-morning skies and the city’s pedestrians at pace. Newman’s London location recalls much of his connected work New York Park Avenue with its glass-fronted skyscrapers, which shape the business district and brilliantly bend around this illuminated sphere. Whereas New York is at the mercy of a relentless surge of motor vehicles, here cars are replaced by the equally fanatical movements of pedestrians as they criss-cross the concrete thoroughfare in a dash to arrive and leave on time. Newman captures the sensational sequence with a rare fish-eye camera lens that with a single exposure seizes the prevailing atmosphere and action. As though spying on a new world from outer space, Newman’s work gives us a view of modern behaviour in a man-made world and invites us to experience the flows of activity in a landscape which can appear impenetrable.
