Street Photography... an art, a mystery, an exercise, a discipline, a genre, an opportunity... a special way to look at the world, but also an even more special way to look inside yourself.
Yes, because like beauty always lies in the eye of the beholder, the same eye is always captured by what the brain already decided it was worth to take note of. So we think we photograph what we see outside, but in reality we are always photographing is an image that already lives in our soul, being it on the surface or hidden deep down... an image that is just waiting to be pulled out and matched with something happening out there, something that makes her resonating.
So photographing is not much different than writing.... it only happens using light as an ink, and photographs are just Marcel Proust's Madeleines.
