"Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." - Elliott Erwitt
I am a great admirer of what I term as traditional street photography, first practised by the great French icons such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau. This traveled across the Atlantic to be continued by Robert Frank, Elliott Erwitt etc.
The mission of the street photographer is to make others see what they would normally pass by not noticing: to open their eyes to the world around them. This is what I try to achieve (hopefully sometimes successfully) with my street images.
