Last Stop, an homage to London’s departing Routemaster bus, has been launched at www.routemasters.co.uk by freelance photographers Jet and Ralf Obergfell. The collection of still life, portrait and documentary photography is set to be published in a book designed by Blast. The Routemaster bus was designed by Douglas Scott and introduced by London Transport in 1956. It will be phased out by the end of this year.
The museum will work with research studio Forensic Architecture on the installation, which is inspired by this year’s theme of “emotional states”.
