Street Portraits

Taking portraits of strangers. It’s exhausting yet exciting. Sometimes it’s scary. However, if I just walk past an interesting character and do nothing, it’s million times worse, as in these cases I always beat myself up over it.

And when you do make a portrait, it feels astounding. Oh yes, that overwhelming feeling when someone you just met looks straight at your camera. A little bit of awkwardness in the portrait is often necessary for magic to happen.

Click, click, click. You say ‘thank you’ and ‘goodbye’. You think: ‘Darn, that was weird. But surely something decent must come out of it’.
