“Who’s Driving You?” by Oleg Tolstoy

I always find something special in all the stories from the streets. In this project Who’s Driving you?, Oleg Tolstoy provides a deep and emotional insight into the cab drivers’ world, where we are taken on a journey through the bustling London streets and quiet respite of the taxi: “In my job as a photographer I use Uber cars, black cabs and mini cabs to travel between shoots. During these journeys I noticed an underlying weight in the air as a result of current conflicts between app and black cab, card and cash. Noticing this mood, in an idle moment between jobs, I began taking a series of photos of cabbies lost in their thoughts. These haunting portraits are ones most passengers and Londoners are usually unaware of, as they ride in the seat behind”.
