I never imagined being an introvert would be an advantage when I was a boy. I spent endless hours escaping into comic books and tales from around the world, travelling through time and space without taking a single step.
Then when I got behind the lens, I found a new escapism, one that enabled me to capture effortless moments and lock them in time. A simple brush of a hand against a cheek, a lone bird flying across the open sky, an old man watching time pass with a cigarette hanging loosely from his lip. I started out as a street photographer, observing silently from the sidelines. This is the essence of how I work today, 10 years on. I let moments unfold naturally and I capture the beauty in them.
