Black. Black is my favorite color. I believe it is the best color to represent us as a human because just like the color we are mysterious. Yes, it is true, we all have different personality but we all have that part most people do not know about.
Fishing With Dynamite. I originally became hooked on street photography in 2010. My philosophy in life is to squeeze every opportunity out of my circumstances by working with what I have, rather than focusing on what I haven’t got, and using ambient light was a part of that mindset.
Donde la luz se deshace (where the light falls apart). Humanist project, which respond to the need to see everyday life through photography, immediately, here and now; in my natural environment, my city, looking for people behind the black mantle that light produces on the streets of the city.
Sitting there with a quivering notion while jet packs exhale. The waveforms parade and your portrait is drawn to the world.
Japan street scene. Location: Kyoto, Osaka, Okinawa.
What I like when I go around the city is to look with the photographer’s eye to capture situations and events that are not normally seen.
Stranger in the Light. This is my primary photography project since the spring of 2017. Stranger in the Light explores candid interactions of people and silhouettes with interesting public spaces filled with intense light and dark shadows.
Everyday Moments. A series of candid images that celebrate the charm in everyday moments. Moments that often go unnoticed. A mother shadowing her child. An empty thought bubble. A new father walking the line. A lawn thief. A play on shadows. A floating lady.
My pictures tend to revolve around themes such as solitude and alienation, forcing dissonant objects into conversation using vibrant colors.
Running from the Sun. There is a place that seems so far from here. A place where the sand, the dirt, the rock and the sky live in harmony. Where the sun beats down on the man formed brick and the asphalt of the journey to the West.
Bonjour Ostend. Andrea Shkreli studies the pulse of a Belgian seaside town, with emphasis on summer conditions, whereby people are usually revitalized, and reveal themselves, and tourism intermingles with slothful everydayness.
DETROIT – The shrinking city.reets. This is a reportage i made in 2016 for one month in Detroit. Some pictures were published in Courrier International, Spiegel, La Repubblica, etc.
Whimsical. A collection of photos made in San Francisco that reveal the whimsical people and culture. This is an active photo series that I continuously modify, and that will likely never reach a “completed” or “final” status.
Stolen Moments. Moments are vital in photography so as timing. As a Photographer, we need reflex action which comes through practice. We observe various moments everyday everywhere within our vicinity.
Stars & Stripes. Stars and Stripes is a project that I completed in 2017. It was an intense 5 day trip to New York City. All shot on 35mm film (Leica M6).
Days at the Channel. “Days at the Channel” series where taken during a time period of regular visits to various locations around the English Channel, in an attempt to observe and capture the coexistence of people and the urban landscape.
Shadow and Street. My submission is about street and shadow. Geometric, shadow and strange coincidences are my main theme in my photos.
Lingering II. These images explore the multiple layers found in our surroundings using light as a tool to identify the degree of visibility.
My attraction to cities, their people and the many different stories that take place on the streets have made this type of photography a fun and quite an obsessive part of my life.
About Japan – Street Opera. People in Japan live in colors, sounds, lights, and silent emotions.
Streetlicious = Street is Delicious. Street photography is very unique. Because we never know or predict what moments we will get or snap. And street photography can be done anywhere and anytime so that makes street photography very enjoyable.
Street Dialogues. These are apparently unrelated stories, spontaneous encounters, whimsical shapes, colors and textures that play, speak and intertwine, showing us a new and visual vision of the city of Almeria (Spain).
A cidade maravilhosa. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, a city that is also referred to by Brazilians as ‘a cidade maravilhosa’, the wonderful city.
Domestic (Dis)order. This ongoing project started with the birth of my eldest daughter as the only solution I could find to carrying on with the type of photography I was interested
Street shots from my walks taken by my compact camera.
Mumbai gestures. Here is a series of street photographs taken in the city of Mumbai in 2017. The purpose of this work was to capture the energy of the streets of Mumbai through the movements of its inhabitants.
A Light Lunch. A light lunch is an ongoing personal photographic project exploring daily life and light during my lunch break in Sydney, Australia.
London is regularly grey and overcast which I was finding quite challenging when trying to compose pictures.
In Own World. Lost within. Lost without. A bit of ‘me’ time. Introspection. Feeling all alone in a crowd. In own world inspects modern day solitary shells.
