Julien Tatham's bus stop photography series uses anonymous subjects. Tatham is a visual artist and was fascinated with the hidden beauty found in urban life. Most find waiting for the bus mundane and boring, but Tatham somehow captures the beauty in it.

Most images are of a single person, with their back facing the camera. Their identities are concealed because most of them are unknowingly participating as subjects. The murky and misty qualities of the glass also gives the collection a unique aesthetic, often providing a filter between the subject and the camera lens.

Through his collection 'Stop Us,' Tatham is able to capture ordinary people in their daily routines. Through his seemingly banal bus stop photography, Tatham teaches us that beauty can be found in anything.
