"I began photographing in the street when I purchased my first iPhone in 2012. I had always been interested in taking photos but I now finds inspiration in the freedom and secrecy the iPhone provides me. I do not have to decide if I will go take pictures or not: I can take pictures all the time, everywhere.
Street Photography, for me, is about life! The life that is in every day, in every moment. It's paying special attention to everything around us, including the smallest things, the most insignificant. And it's pretty staggering to think that everything, absolutely everything, can potentially make an interesting photo! So I always try to go without preconceived ideas. I’ve realized that it is when I "let go" and let my instincts take over, that the most interesting photos are made.
For me black and white, above all, is about getting down to the essence of the moment. It prevents colors and shapes that can distract from interfering with the eyes."
