We are happy to have Bas Losekoot, Dutch artist and photographer, on board for this interview. Losekoot lives and works in Amsterdam, but travels around the world to photograph the streets of megacities like New York, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Lagos for his project Out of Place. As he is researching human behaviour in public space, we discuss the issue of personal space, the choreography of people in an urban environment, the position of the photographer and Losekoot’s own state of mind when he photographs others.
