For me personally | I love to feel life as you do it in street photography. I enjoy to capture the beauty of everyday moments, to discover magic in ordinary days – every shot you take as a street photographer is ephemeral and unique. Some moments are telling you stories that unveil their deeper meaning only later. To me, street photography is a confession of love to life. It is a spiritual experience of a deeper connection with the world surrounding me. I go out into the world, open my heart and eyes and see what happens next.
