Intimate, Painterly Photographs of London Bus Passengers On Their Nighttime Commute Photographer Nick Turpin‘s series Through a Glass Darkly takes a different approach to candid street photography than we typically see.

Rather than trying to save the country one school dinner at a time or “throw together a crostini”, he’s found a name for himself making and photographing such gastronomical fancies as edible rainbows and deep fried iPads. But it's his No Seconds project that he's become best known for, in which he recreated the last meals of various serial killers on death row and presented them in a chilling photo series. Looking through the set gives you a tangible, almost sensory window into the minds of condemned men. And in a world where we’re overwhelmed with hundreds of filtered pictures of food every day, it’s pretty amazing to find a photo of mint chocolate ice cream that actually makes you think. I caught up with Henry to discuss his photos.

By Richard Walker on in Photography Post Production Once upon a time photography was in large part about remembering complicated rules and equations and a fair amount of luck.
