It’s a rainy January day in London, 2012. I’ve borrowed a camera from a friend to decide whether or not I want to buy one. I’ve been shooting street photography seriously now for a year or two, mainly in Borough Market. I walk through its stalls every day and take pictures of other commuters, the market sellers setting up their stalls, and during lunchtime when it’s packed full of people.

My Project is about Train Runners. I started a new job that required me to commute by train. People say that one door opens when another door closes. For me the new door that opened led me to an interesting photography series.
