My first love in photography has always been street photography. I love capturing candid, authentic moments. For me, they are not only real and natural and most of them tell stories, I also love the challenge of street photography because a lot of these moments would never happen again. Not in the same way anyway.
Photos in this gallery are of people, animals, moments and emotions I captured while travelling. Landscapes and buildings are captivating and breathtaking but these candid moments are what tug at my heartstrings. To me, these photo subjects are what made the place special or memorable. A photo of a giant arched door may be beautiful but a photo of a giant arched door with two men sitting in front of it adds a bit of 'what are these two men doing in the middle of the day, sitting and lounging?', 'what are they talking about?', 'are they friends, neighbours, relatives?', 'are they waiting for someone to go somewhere together?', 'how many travellers have they seen sitting there today?', 'do they speak English?', 'are they going to tell me to not take photos of them?', 'are they going to wave hello and say "welcome to l'oudaya"?', 'are they going to offer me a tour for a handsome fee?' I love how instantly, the photo becomes more than just an image of a place because of a possible story behind it.
