Right from the Street

To shoot in the street, I have to be unpredictable. There is no hard and fast rule about tactics of working in the street. The best practitioners must sometimes move at the speed of light to capture a split-second collision of line or form, at other times have the patience to wait all day at the same corner before the right compositional elements come together. Not only I have to find ways of working that suits my personality, but also I have to be willing to push myself to the edge of my comfort zone. Richard Kalvar observes brilliantly: “ I’m kind of shy and sneaky and aggressive at the same time. Sometimes I have the nerve, sometimes I don’t.”
