Street Photography

Although I’m known more for my landscape work, I’m just as happy to roam the streets of the world’s greatest cities with my camera. When I was starting out as a young photographer, I studied the works of the great street photographers from the 1940s and 1950s (Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau and Brassaï) in journals and books, and it was their method that I chose to adopt – they weren’t tied down with a tripod or distracted with moving dials, but their eyes were always open and ready. And while I try to capture what I call a ‘pure landscape’ in my landscape work (omitting people and man-made structures), I take a very different approach to my street photography, actively seeking out the unique individuals and architecture that define the character of a city.
