I was searching for people who uses the urban space at night for their own needs. Lots of cityspace is commercial. You can not move around and do what ever you want. For me the city is like a stage. With all the lights it looks like a filmstill or a theaterscene. I wanted to transform the banal scenery into a filmstill. I asked the persons, if I can take a picture of what they are doing. Then I took a long time exposure and they have to stand still like a sculpture for 6 - 20 seconds. This gave the whole scene a dense moment of importance.There is a shift between documantary and fiction. You don`t know if it`s real or stage photography.
