About the Book
Today, the body of street photography is extensive and divers. The names of renowned photographers who had and have at least one foot in this camp is endless and many of their images have become iconic. Indeed, the best of photography can be found in street pictures. While they provide information about how things are or were, the span between what is in the picture and what we see, leaves the room for interpretation and reflection wide and open.
My picture making has always been concerned with capturing the traces of life and time. What prompted me initially to photograph my fellow citizens, was a change in people's behavior; with phones in hand and heads bent, navigating the pavement had become more difficult. But over time my focus broadened, and the result is this collection of photographs from 2012 to 2016.
After 30 years in the corporate world I followed my heart and studied photography in Brighton. My interest is in capturing traces of life and time. Through my lens I create work, which expresses my delight in seeing. I am a ‘joyous sensualist’ in the sense Walker Evans talked about photographers.
