Influenced by the remarkable vision and distinct style of Gary Winogrand, my artistic practice seeks to capture the essence of candid moments in the urban landscape. Like Winogrand, I am fascinated by the raw energy and complexity of everyday life, and through my lens, I aim to freeze these fleeting moments in time, revealing the hidden narratives and human connections that often go unnoticed. With a keen eye for composition and a deep understanding of the power of timing, I immerse myself in the rhythm of the streets, constantly scanning my surroundings for compelling scenes. I embrace the chaos and unpredictability of the urban environment, using it as a backdrop to tell stories and provoke questions about our shared human experience. I employ a similar visual language to create images that are dynamic, gritty, and evocative. I am drawn to the interplay of light and shadow, the juxtaposition of shapes and lines, and the layers of visual information that weave together to form a compelling narrative. Through careful framing and precise timing, I aim to distill the essence of a scene into a single frame, capturing the essence of a moment that might otherwise be lost to time. My approach to street photography is one of immersion. I become an observer, watching the crowd while keenly aware of the stories unfolding around me. I seek to capture the candid gestures, fleeting expressions, and decisive moments that reveal the nuances of human interaction and emotion. In doing so, I aim to shed light on the often-overlooked aspects of our urban existence, exposing the beauty and complexity that lies beneath the surface. That all sounds well and good but all I really do is wander for miles with a camera with the images of Winogrand, Leiter and Eisenstaedt on my shoulder. My wandering has also managed to win me a few awards.
