In the autumn of 2016 a new Prada store was made on Ströget in Copenhagen, the site was shielded by a wooden fence that suddenly created a temporary urban space, which was a fantastic backdrop and scene which was populated with random passers-by. I was there over 28 times during the three months to photograph the diversity of people who passed by.
