I started this project around five years ago when I decided that it was time to take up the challenge of obtaining a Fellowship. I used to go out and practice Street Photography very often, doing research and studying light in the streets. Going out, shooting, and returning with nothing good was still a success as the shoot served as a training session for my mind and eyes. Failure was not actually going out to shoot.
My inspirations at first came from Henri Cartier Bresson and Fan Ho and lately, Mark Fearnley. In fact, some of my work in this panel reflects their influence.
In my images, the people are the actors, ‘performing’ for me in the scene I want. This creates a ‘Simultaneous Coalition’ where part of the image is composed (background composition) whilst the other part is spontaneous (the passer by).
I feel that this ‘City Life’ journey is another of my main evolvements in my photographic journey and career, and I look forward to future challenges.
