Street photography is a form of ready made. You see something and it is perfect just as it is.
I walk the streets with open eyes and a repository of ideas and themes at the back of my mind. The chance element I seek when painting is naturally present in street photography. We just have to turn a corner, get lost and keep our eyes open in order to find a mirror for our thoughts.
I have the impression we don’t ‘take’ photographs, we make them. They are created by the internal narratives we have going on in our heads. We see something ‘out there’ because it corresponds with themes, narratives, conversations already in process, consciously or unconsciously. The themes I explore in my paintings are reflected in what catches my eye as I travel and walk streets.
These photographs were taken in Venice, Paris, LA and Miami.
