The photographs in this slideshow represent two areas of my photography. The first six photos are portraits, all medium format.
The other nine shots are what I refer to as street shots. Random moments, mundane slices of time. As a photographer I feel it’s my task to document these moments, to be a witness to history. A man sitting on a bench, a woman in an Amsterdam window, a man with a bike in Mexico, a Sikh woman at a festival in Barcelona, a child on a bus in Costa Rica, everyone with their own thoughts, their own misery, their own happiness, all in their own world. Nothing special these pieces of history maybe, but still they are! These moments are parts of our world and I was there.
