Street Photography II, or, ‘In the Metro’

This, the second post in a street photography series, focuses on the Parisian metro, and the characters found in it.

These are two of the more controversial¬†photographs I’ve taken.

Street Photography I, or, ‘The Two Saints’

The next few posts in this gallery will include some of my street photography from 2011. These shots have been posted elsewhere, but not yet to this gallery. I consider these images, and this period, extremely important in shaping me as a photographer. Please note that whenever possible, I obtain permission from the subjects of my photos.

America II, or, ‘The People of Las Vegas’

I was in Las Vegas on business, but I spent some time walking the strip during the evenings. I asked a number of locals if I could take their portraits, and almost all obliged. Below is a selection of my favourites. Included is what I consider the best shot from the trip.

Sometimes, what is missing from a photograph says more than what is present.

London’s Heart

After some of the worst rioting in years, residents of Clapham are  waiting for forensic teams to finish so that they can clean their streets. Some of them are students, some are men and women who have taken a day off to help. These are true Londoners.

To wild cheers from the crowd, a man hangs some bunting across the street.
