When I do street photography, I’m looking for chance encounters between people and their surroundings.
I look at the scene in front of me as a 2-dimensional surface, like a modernist painting about-to-be, made up of moving lines, colour and rhythm. Press my camera shutter – the movement stops and the action freezes.
The result might just be interesting in the abstract, shapes of positive and negative space moving the eye in a pleasing way. Or, a curious story could appear with a person’s presence.
After working in museums for decades, their galleries are my favourite “streets.”
