Making photographs on the street has always been a way for me to challenge assumptions. In my world, the subtle nuance is more compelling than the grand gesture. In my world, there is poetry in a gritty black & white slice-of-life.
I look for the poignant subtexts in random situations, using the frame as a tool to create connections. The camera's reputation as a recorder of reality gives a dubious credibility to the sometimes unlikely result. The outcome can, at times, seem humorous. In the end, however, these frozen fractions of time can break your heart.
