On the street, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The emotions count, no matter how technically good you are. So, sometimes I like it to be not only rough and somewhat “unfinished”, but also out of focus. It works as it is.
Today’s pictures I took at de Dam in Amsterdam a little more than 1,5 year ago. First I only copied them in black and white, but as I’ve started to work lots more in color, I decided to redo them. Which one do you like the most?
My Project Time is change (#TIC)is slowly picking up speed. Now there’s a page in my portfolio/project section on this site, where you can check it out. #TIC is at the moment (sic) what broods my mind the most, so I’ll soon update with more pics.
The third of my friends in my street photography community (Gothenburg area) that I’ll like to introduce is Mats Johansson. As many of us, he’s got another job full time and take pics wherever he go (as he travels a lot). No matter whether you call Mats an amateur or not, he’s got that great eye for interesting pics.
I saw one of Mats exhibitions last spring, where he declared that anything urban interests him, sometimes it’s street art, sometimes street photography – quite often a combination of the two. In his own words:
– To look for and catch moments, views and interesting meetings in a urban environment is magic, especially with lots of people and movements in them. It’s the mix of documentary and art that fascinates me.
