I am made up of contradictions – I love photographing people, yet at the same time Im a painfully shy individual with bouts of self-consciousness added in for extra fun when it comes to dealing with strangers and that makes being a true portrait photographer somewhat challenging, which is why I turned to street photography. This genre of photography scares many, however, I seem to find a kind of a selfish comfort in it – I can still photograph people yet remain mostly unnoticed by them. Portraiture of strangers, the one where I would actually have to go up to them and ask permission to take their photo, still remains an uncharted territory for me due to the above mentioned reasons, but maybe one day I will dare to cross that invisible border. In the meantime I give you the beautiful people of this year. This time in full blown colours.
