Raw, Naked Art

I’m a street photographer at my core, so what do flowers have to do with shooting street, you might ask?
For me the definition between a street photographer and a photographer are marginal, and so it becomes more a question of shooting technique than it is about style or genre.
Life is unfolding and happening constantly around me. As I view it through my eyes and the lens of my camera I am able to steal moments, crystallising them and their profound, if transient and familiar meanings, achieving the seemingly impossible like a magician bending the laws of time and physics.

      Maria 🙂

        1. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been struggling. Loss is hard to deal with, and I doubt it ever really gets any easier.

          Since we last spoke, which was a long while ago now, I’ve made the move to the US and got married.

          My health was suffering a lot by the time I left.
          I don’t do much writing or blogging these days, so I’ve been focussing my attentions on my photography instead. I’m hoping to resume work on my book at some point, but I’m just not ready yet.

          I hope you are keeping well otherwise. It’s been lovely to hear from you again.
