Street Photography has always been and will probably always be in the focus of my attention. My parens always travelled a lot, showed me cultures all over the world and therefore evoked my curiosity about cities and their inhabitants at young age.
I love to get lost in cities, to spend hours and days just wandering around. In fact, whenever I arrive in a city I have not been before I take two or three days just to walk around town without taking photos or even carrying a camera with me. It’s only when I think that I adopted a basic understanding about how the city works that I start to actually take photos.
I study people in the streets, the way they look at each other, the way they move, the way they kiss their wifes goodbye in the morning, the way they talk to the street vendor when they buy the morning papers, the way they doze in the subway, the way they go out at night, the way they flirt, drink, dance, touch, kiss, love, but also the way they shout, they fight, they swear, the way they cry.
As Ernst Haas put it: „There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are“.
You could say that what I’m trying to do is tell people’s unheard stories.
