These Photos Show Remarkable Quiet Moments Amid the Hustle and Bustle

Living in a big city, one gets used to the busyness all around - how everyone is always in a rush, cars honking at each other, the busy chatter of people walking by - that it's quite refreshing to capture moments of stillness amidst the cacophony. And that's what British photographer Oli Kellett chases after in every expedition he goes on around the world.

He takes photos of crosswalks, that part of urban life that one would expect to be busy most of the time. But, once in a while, he would find a moment as if the whole world has stopped turning, frozen in time. This collection of photos has been the subject of his new art show titled "Waiting for a Sign".

In most of the photos in the collection, it almost always features the subject illuminated by sunlight, standing still at a crossing, waiting for the light to turn green. At times, subjects would be a bit animated, pointing at something in the sky or talking to their companions. But, there's always this element of solitude and peace.

Check out some other photos in the collection on CNN.
