fifteen hours

In July, August and September 2015, artist Martin Hamblen spent 5 hours Monday - Friday sat on the streets of Manchester, Blackpool and Preston performing the phrase “A penny for your thoughts”.

Each of these images captures the duration of his performance for a single day in every location. The photographs have an exposure of five hours, capturing in this period only the subjects that paused long enough in front of the lens. 2015
