You know that theory on how we're all supposedly six or fewer steps away from each other? Six degrees of separation? The idea that there's a chain of a friend of a friend. It was established by Frigyes Karinthy in 1929 and now forms the inspiration behind this beautiful portrait series by London photographer Phil Sharp.
Entitled non:fictions, the shots were taken around the capital, capturing a moment in each characters’ journey. The series is intended to be viewed in sequence, with each subject connected to the ones before and after in some way. "It’s a reminder that our behaviour affects people outside of our immediate circle," explains Phil.
"It started off with me wanting to find a way to combine landscapes and portraiture, I liked the idea of taking an interesting landscape, or topographic photograph, and seeing how the addition of a figure changed the way the viewer connected with it."
