This bus photography series consists of passengers somewhat visible through the foggy glass windows of public transport vehicles. Photographed by Nick Turpin, Through a Glass Darkly takes its name from the Bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."

The bus photography subjects are London passengers. Taken in the cold winter months at nighttime, the pictures certainly showcase the gloomy atmosphere the cold often brings. In some of the captures the people riding the bus are more visible than others. You also see a blur of colors through the glass: the bright yellow poles, the electric blue seats.
