this week i’ve spent tree evenings on street photography assignment. the best thing about street photography is that it is like going on an unknown voyage. you just never know what you are going to notice, or what shots you are going to make. street life has its own pace. it’s simply impossible predict what’s going to happen next. you just have to be quick enough to grab the moment and make the best of it.
street photography involves attention to scenes and moments that you only recognize subconsciously. i moved around urban Stockholm and Nyköping (town, were I live now) looking for interesting places and tried to discover some poetic moments in this winter atmosphere. yeah, i actually think it was worth getting out in the cold to get some of these shots.
one of the great photographers Elliot Erwitt said: “photography has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”.
