Chris Dorley-Brown mixes reportage and architectural photography for amazing montages of street scenes

We spoke with photographer Chris Dorley-Brown about his Corners project, where he creates hyperreal scenes of street corners by compositing sequences of shots together taken several minutes apart…

The Corners comprises of 48 colour photos of East End street corners shot between 2009 and 2017. It’s about nothing, but the subject matter is a document of a place and a time. I was keen to make a simple documentary series that was non-thematic, other than the fact that is was using the street corner as a point of reference. What was interesting to me was it was metaphor for collisions, departures, meetings and mystery – we’re never really sure what’s around the corner.
