Street Photography is very difficult. Limiting myself to black and white photography helps me focus on the story, light and composition.
Sometimes, you stumble upon an interesting scene. You wait until something happens.
In this photo, the potential was high to get a keeper. However, the gesture of the kid is amazing and the women setting up the store windows are perfectly placed.
Andorrà, February 2022
Trying to figure out the wonderful lens Noctilux 0.95 by Leica, I think it’s the first time I really observe the famous Leica 3D Pop.
Maybe that’s not it. The debate on this topic seems endless
Anyways, I like how this lens brings in depth to the image. Especially when several layers are included, there is a smooth transition on different zones of the image.

I wish the dancing man was facing me, but the older gentleman suggest a different story.
Street Photography in Black & White fills up my portfolio. Professionals told me to publish only my best pictures. How can I do that when my best image is always the next one. Instead of a traditional portfolio, I am sharing what crosses my lens and gave me great pleasure to make. My training is more traditional with drawing and painting. Like the great Henri Cartier Bresson once said « a photo is a drawing in 1/250th of a second).

I don’t know who said « F8 and be there » but that’s what happened here.
my goal was to watch out for subject separation. I don’t like when subjects are melted into each other’s, unless it’s on purpose. The little girl behind the fence is the good surprise I didn’t plan.

The beautiful smile I saw a couple of seconds ago was gone. Instead, I was traded another proposition. We can imagine a few stories here.
I was waiting for the subject to change legs position, but wasn’t hoping for such an interesting coordination with the background lines created by the central structures.
This portrait of my daughter, Lila, was shot with an analog camera, Leica M7 equipped withe a 50mm Summicron f/2, using Ilford Delta 100.
We tried to play with lines and shapes, using Dynamic Symmetry principles.
Perpignan, France, Summer 2021
Quai Vauban offers a very cool perspective for Street Photography. Find a spot and wait for the right subject to come by.
In this cas, I was walking by and saw this great character. It was pure luck that the canal offered a nice perspective in the background. Icing on the cake is the giant plastic butterfly hanging above the water.
I like the rythm created by the subjects (humans and statues)

Saint-Cyprien, France (near Perpignan)
The sun was already up there, but the light wasn’t too rough.
In this image, I like how some elements balance out others.
I like how the mannequin leg’s in the shop’s window are straight while the lady is flexing one leg.

However, putting myself in the frame feels like an important part of my journey to find my style.
