Don't take a picture, take a moment...
Street moments and my journeys are the basis for my photographs. On the spur of the moment, I take pictures of people mastering the trivia of everyday life. Sometimes they notice, but mostly they don’t. You can compare it with music and improvisation. You keep playing and suddenly you feel it – a moment of perfect harmony. Sometimes I spend half an hour looking for that moment, some other time I find it within seconds. I can’t catch any thoughts, but I can capture moments. A picture is a piece of memory for the person in it, but it may also make the beholder ponder.
I enjoy meeting new people. By chatting and getting into conversation with them, I learn about other cultures. We then change our e-mail addresses and I send them the picture. I can’t talk to all the people in my photos, though. Sometimes they leave that instant, there is not enough time or it’s just not the right moment.
I don’t intend to make money out of my pictures or to expose anyone to ridicule. If you find yourself in a picture and you like it, contact me and I will send it to you in high-resolution. If you find yourself in a picture and you don’t like it, contact me and I will remove it.
