Black and white urban photography has always been a precious part of my photography. I love observing a street scene, shooting its urban environment and urban life, and taking time to develop the street photos that will emerge from the journey. City photography has enabled me as a street photographer to better look at the surrounding urban landscape and open my eyes to the actual atmosphere of a corner and street.
Street art shows the reality and vulnerability of a town, its inhabitants, and passersby. The zoom lens, image quality, and angle are significant elements, but the daring side of black and white urban photography will add the missing touch and lead to an unforgettable image. When looking at Diane Arbus, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Maier, and Martin Parr‘s photographs, all talented street photographers, you will notice that they unveiled some hidden and touching sides of New York, Hong Kong, and Paris. These are ingredients needed to reach the attaching side of an excellent urban photo and will most probably lead to a mesmerizing and unseen street portrait.
