Shapes and Forms
‘I’m not necessarily interested in the main subject at all … all they’re doing is adding another shape or form.’
What Rupert describes as shapes and forms are in fact two builders fetching their tools from a van outside the cafe.
‘I’m more interested in the light coming through that bench in the street and the shadows it creates.’
By the end of the interview, Rupert’s not only reduced the builders to their shadows and the bench to its highlights. He’s reduced the entire daylight shooting hours from 9 to 11. And for that matter, he’s reduced the entire calendar year from mid-April through to late June. As if by summary, he raises his hand and exclaims:
‘If the light’s bad, I’ll go home.’
