About The Photographer in His Own Words:
"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." -Elliott Erwitt.
I wish that I had more time to devote to photography. However, when I get that chance, the sheer enjoyment of it always makes up for those weeks of waiting.
My preference has evolved from experimental to street, and finally to people.
In people photography I have found what I need, and so far it has been a very interesting journey.
My preference for B&W derives from my days in the dark room, which started when I was about twelve. I once won a Jobo colour kit in a photography competition at school, but asked for the money instead in order to buy a new monochrome enlarger and lens..
When it comes to photography I see in shades of grey, and I cannot see this changing soon. I am sure that my choice of subject matter has evolved in parallel with this realisation.
I am passionate about the various peoples of that continent that I belong to, and in bringing pictures of ordinary folk in their ordinary houses to this forum (1x.com) I have started to appreciate how powerful a medium photography actually is, and the responsibility that accompanies this.
