Hasselblad 503cw 6x6 & Canon 580ex flashes

These photographs were taken as part a uni project whilst at the University of Westminster in December 2004 with my friend Ryan Grayley and Tanya Muravskaja (another photographer on our course), at Ashridge Business School.  The series was created to show how certain people in our society are often ignored, mistreated and neglected. 

How many times have you been genuinely apprecietive of someone carrying your bags, serving your food or cleaning your room?

Have you even noticed these people?  Do we ever noticed these people?

The were photographed on a Hasselblad 503cw, with i think an 80mm ƒ2.8 lens at ƒ2.8 or ƒ4 on Fuji Provia 100F (RDP III) with four or five Canon 580ex's.  The flashes were triggered and synced via the infrared system built into them and carefully set to give shadow and light up our subjects in clean white angelic light.  The perpetrator of such crimes of ignorance and exclusion (us), are lit with orange tungsten light, thus creating the separation.
