Colin Steel: When Saturday Comes

Once or twice a month I try to produce a visual short story based on either my current situation or travels and I call it ‘When Saturday Comes’.

On the 14th of November 2015 Saturday came unfortunately on the day after the terrorist atrocity in Paris where I was within 200 metres of the worst events. In the weeks prior to the Saturday I had been in Paris for Paris Photo and was shooting as usual but when I put together the WSC series on the day after I found it quite an emotional edit and couldn’t help but be influenced in my selection and sequence by the events of Friday 13th.

The eye is flowing smoothly along the curves, following lines, resting in the deeps of shadows and enjoying the flares of light on the body.
