Woman in Dr. Martens boots on a train


I had a strong sense of déjà vu as I was photographing this young woman. She was occupying two benches on a train, talking loudly and for a very long time over a mobile phone to her friends and… she had these shiny, bright Dr. Martens boots firmly places on the seat.

Some time ago I photographed a young man in similar pose wearing similar Dr. Martens boots. Even the situation was similar – late train after a very long day at the office. Taking that into consideration I decided to give this new photograph a similar, selective colour treatment, bringing the focus to the colourful Dr. Martens boots. Was it the subject of the photograph? Well, I’ll let you ponder on that one.
