Then in 2008 I started concentrating more on street photographs which I find the most challenging, unpredictable and beautiful of all photographs. After all I started taking pictures because I fell in love with the images made by Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt and such. And it is challenging because you can’t repeat something that happened – all you can do is to be there. When you take pictures of things that just happen you never know what pictures you can take. You can shoot three or four films and not take a single good picture. Sometimes it happens and it’s great when it does. Of course, the only limits are those in your mind. These are few of the reasons for which I photograph what I photograph. I don’t like the name “street photography” because the street isn’t a necessary condition for these photographs to be taken. I guess the subject has to do with people, with their lives, with the beautiful and sometimes the absurd side of life. It has to do with the environment which we live our lives, with reality that sometimes it’s so real it becomes surreal. And of course it has a lot to do with observing, seeing and understanding.
Most of the photographs were shot on film which offers a lot more than digital. Of course a good photograph is a good photograph, but film has a different feel. It has better color, better contrast, better texture and I can say it has more life to it.At the moment I work at some personal projects which I hope will turn out how I like.
Thanks for the visit! See you!
