ON STREET PHOTOGRAPHY and other life changing events


Beach Man, Spotorno, Italy

I call it Beach Man.

For me this is a very special photo. Walking along the tourist beach in Spotorno, Italy, I think I for the very first time had the feeling that street photography (at that time it did not have a name for it) could be a way of photography.

One day, I said, I have to come back and do more of this.

It took close to 10 year to do more of this. For me, this was a photo was a game changer.

If you need to know: Contax G1, Contax 45 mm, Reala.

I always come back to look at this photograph.

    I can see why. It has that “grabbing” quality, but quietly so.
