What’s the view from your workplace? If you’re anything like the average Londoner your eyeline will barely extend beyond mountains of paperwork, old coffee cups and tired faces of your workmates. However, if you happen to be as lucky as cycle courier Ben Hughes, then the whole city is your oyster. A normal ‘day at the office’ for Ben consists of cycling across the city, swerving tourists, ducking pigeons, musing offensive graffiti and encountering the capital’s vagabonds. Over the past eleven years, Ben has combined his biking adventures with his love of photography to create a collage of moments of everyday life. His efforts are currently on display in a show called ‘Step Into My Office’ at Double Negative Darkroom, and will travel to various venues until December.
