Streetphotography isn't about architecture, but it is the art of
photographing people in the city as they interact with other people,
their surroundings or with YOU; the photographer.

There are many different ways and styles to do streetphotography.

You can use a long tele-lens and work as a sniper making sure people
won't notice you, or you can use a wide lens and engage with the people
you are capturing with your camera.

Streetphotography is a rewarding form of photography
where style and personality becomes a part of the picture.

Q

Poetry is my first love.
Photography often fail to look into things.
It looks at things.
Poetry is so much more truthful.

Photography has many similarities with poetry.
There's not a strong relationship between the disciplines, but
there is a tight one between the sensibilities.
Black and white is minimalist.
Poetry is just literature with the water squeezed out of it
and good literature is just journalism that doesn't grow old.
This says a lot to me about what makes good photojournalism.
