Neither a so-called street photographer nor interested in the rhetoric of staged photography, Stephen Waddell creates photographs that deliberately exist in a place of ambiguity. In his work, Waddell intertwines the realist history of early modern painting with that of early street photography to create considered studies of anonymous figures working, relaxing, and moving through the urban environment.

This artwork was originally a public art commission for the Capture Photography Festival in partnership with Burrard Arts Foundation. Placed on the facade of the Dal Grauer Substation, the work finds links to mid-century modernism, with its renewed optimism for the possibilities of art, architecture, and technology and their ability to enhance the public realm.
