I was inspired to do the DLR project for two reasons. One, I read and really enjoyed Walk the lines by Mark Mason where the author walked the entire length of the London Underground (obviously overground) and passed every station. Two, London is reasonably accessible for me and I can get on location in an hour or so.
The shooting brief was simple: to visit every DLR station (45 in total) and take pictures. These could be on the train, of its users, of the trains, of the stations and the areas around the stations. The potential for pictures is huge and I just wanted one from every station.
I haven't set a time limit on the project, but at this point I have been to every station at least once. Getting a good shot at some stations is easier than others - some stations are proving a real challenge (struggle!) so I am persevering.
Here is a selection of some shots I am happy with at the moment but not the final selection or treatment.
In terms of gear used, shots have been taken on a variety of cameras mostly Fujifilm X-series but also Nikon, Olympus OMD and Pentax K1.
