Bob Mazzer On The Buses

July 11, 2014
by the gentle author

After more than forty years photographing on the tube, Bob Mazzer revealed to me that recently he has been photographing from the bus. Over recent weeks while his debut exhibition UNDERGROUND has been running at the Howard Griffin Gallery, Bob has regularly been catching the 48 back and forth from London Bridge to Shoreditch High St – and taking pictures of what he sees from the window.

Given that the number of pictures in Bob’s current exhibition corresponds approximately to the number of years he has been photographing on the tube, I think we may wait awhile before a show of his bus pictures materialises that meets his own rigorous selection criteria. Yet each of the photos below is characterised by the unique view of humanity that we recognise in all his work.

    The best way to see London is from the top of a bus.
    I’ve been enjoying them for years

    I started travelling to work on buses again for the first time in years about 4 months ago. I travel at different times of the day and it’s fascinating, all life is there.
