Reflections On Life is an ongoing international project by award-winning London based photographer and friend of in-public Dougie Wallace.
Shot in Lisbon, Egypt and Eastern Europe, including, Sarajevo, Ukraine and Albania, this series of photographs features people glimpsed through the windows of city trams.
As the subjects go about their daily lives, a reflection of their city – be it grand architecture or garish posters – is captured on their faces. The effect of these different layers produces a disorienting and surreal series of images that tell the story of these people and their cities in subdued, painterly tones.

You can get a glimpse of the project so far between the 18th and 21st November at:
