ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I'm a self-taught street photographer. The streets interest me as there is always a story in every scene waiting for me to discover. Every scene on the street is also fleeting. This ever-changing nature of street photography makes it great fun to photograph and I never get bored of it. My favorite photos are those with few humans in it and that they are not the main subject. This symbolises to me, how small we really are and that humans are not always the main subject. Sometimes taking a step back, we see that the universe is so much bigger and we are only mere specks in it. However, the human element is also important as without them, the scene would not be the same.
