NYC-based photographer Bill Sullivan's More Turns series is one of 3 intensive studies in situational photography, a specific style constrained by a rigid set of guidelines. For example, the image or photograph must be candid, the context of the situation must be clearly established, and the background must be exactly the same for every subject. Yielding an intriguing repetitious delight, More Turns explores the state of being of MTA subway passengers upon their exit via turnstile. Sullivan describes his process for this particular project:
I developed a situation so that various subjects could be defined by the constraints of exactly the same mechanical apparatus. The scenario consisted of someone passing through a subway turnstile. At the moment that the subjects passed through the turnstile, unknown to them, I took their picture stationed at a distance of eleven feet. I stood there turning pages of a magazine observing subjects out of the corner of my eye, waiting for only the moment when they pushed the turnstile bar to release the shutter.
