“I’m not scared of breaking the fourth wall”, Wallace has said of the photos where the subject is clearly aware of him taking the shot. “If they are looking at you in a photograph most photographers will think, oh, that’s not a good image. (But) people like to be involved and in the picture. You can see what they are thinking, see them talking”. (Photo by Dougie Wallace/The Guardian)

In Dougie Wallace’s photos of Mumbai taxis, the chatter, yelling, and constant horns of the city are almost audible. A selection of his images is on show at Gayfield Creative Spaces, Edinburgh, as part of the Retina photography festival until 30 July. For four years, the Glasgow-born Wallace focused his photos on one kind of taxi in particular: the Premier Padmini, a 1960s workhorse painted in black and yellow. Locally known as “Kaali-Peeli”, there were once more than 60,000 of them in the Indian city. But thanks to laws restricting pollution, the cars now are fast disappearing from Mumbai’s streets.

Central Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River are seen from an abandoned skyscraper in Bangkok April 19, 2015. The abandoned building, known as Satorn Unique, dubbed the “ghost tower” was destined to become one of Bangkok's most luxurious residential addresses but construction was never completed as the Thai economy was hit during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. Now, many travellers visit and explore 49-storey skyscraper. (Photo by Athit Perawongmetha/Reuters)
