I was recently in Swanage, Dorset for a few days. The town is a nice family seaside with a pleasant small beach. However, I didn’t spend that much time in Swanage except for walking along its beach and testing some beers at the local pubs. The area offers plenty of country walks
As a street photographer I sometimes wonder how my perception of colour influences my vision of the world and my photographs. This is especially true in places like western countries where the colours do not always have the light and the visual impact of some exotic countries. However
In these two images taken in India, Sangam and Varanasi, the photo pairing is simply based on the hand gesture. Then the left photo is open as it is possible to visualise its environment as the other is closed.
Expressing myself between documentary and street photography, my work focus on long term projects because of the human aspect, but also to have better insight and understanding of a situation over time. Photography is a medium that allows me to explore the cultural and sociological aspects of life in order to understand the relationship between the people, their traditions/habits/cultures and their environment. In recent years I have worked on separate long term projects about the Medinas of Morocco and more recently the Yamuna river in India.
