Trapped in the Grid 03

Trapped in the Grid aims to present images showing members of our species interlocked within the vast system that both sustains and imprisons us.

Image 03 was taken in the coffee shop at the international arrivals lounge in Stansted Airport. Unlike the other images in this series, I haven’t had time to consider it for the collection.

I’ll be posting a new image from this series each month.

I’ll be posting a new image from this series each month.
