The waiting game

For most of us, getting stuck in traffic is a source of frustration - but for photographer Chris Dorley-Brown in 1986 and 1987, the experience was the inspiration for an opportunistic and unusual series of portraits, published in the book Drivers In The 1980s.

Personally speaking, at least, the images underline the fact that the 1980s are fast receding into history. The cars, the hairstyles and particularly the very stiff-upper-lip city gent staring straight ahead on a bus are all vivid reminders of an increasingly distant past.
