"Be Quick"
A man rushing to catch the train and a couple lingering for a last, quick good-bye: interesting contrast. Paris 2007

Biography: I took up street photography after visiting Paris, inspired by how Boubat, Doisneau, Kertesz and others captured the humor, sadness, beauty and irony of daily life. I look for the "click point," the visceral second that tells a story, reflecting how people interact with each other and their surroundings. Catching someone in an unguarded moment that lets viewers relate on a humanistic level is extremely satisfying -- there are few things more interesting than human nature in action.
