My father handed me my first camera (a rangefinder) when I was 16 but funnily enough I have never shot street photography with that camera. Today, founder of BULBphotos Collective, of PhoS Street Photography Days and of the SCP community, writer and editor of various books, I want to pay back my debt to him and to my good friend Nikos Papadimitriou who was a great fan of Henri Cartier-Bresson and he transmitted me the virus.

Street photography took me hostage because it is the photography of freedom, of emancipation, of synergy among human beings and at the same time the total absence of them. It is an attitude against the ordinary, an instinctive response to the unpredictable, a juxtaposition of the unrelated.
