I’ve always been fascinated by street photography. The ability to capture emotion and narrative in images of complete strangers is an incredible skill, and one I have always wanted to possess. I’ve always felt a bit nervous taking pictures of strangers on the street though. I know I’d feel slightly uncomfortable being the subject of someone else’s shot.
Today I forced myself to do it anyway. I went into the city center and started looking for subjects.
York is an amazing city, full of people from all over the country visiting for the markets and the historic sights, and they are well worth seeing. I prefer shooting a different side of York. I am an observer, trying to find interest in everyday life here. I love living here. This city, with its myriad of characters, provides me with no end of subjects.
