Focusing on graphic elements within our environment, Jacob aims to show a more considered style of street photography and document the spaces that surround us. Through the work "Private Thoughts in Public Places", Jacob focuses on the subtle effects of modern life which for many of us can be a daily assault on our senses. We grow accustomed to the noises, sights and smells, becoming passive to the billboards and de-tuned to stranger's conversations. Sometimes it's because of the all too familiar; the daily rituals we all observe and repetitive tasks that our memory simply doesn't need to preserve another record of performing. Sometimes it's to escape. It's these moments of contemplation I have chosen to document.
