Paris Stories ~ Part 3
On a typical day with my camera, in Paris or elsewhere, I go out empty and let the street surprise me. There are stories happening all around us. As street photographers, it’s our responsibility to see them and immortalize them in a frame.
Paris speaks to me, it revealed a few secrets to me in January when I was roaming its streets with my little camera.
Here are a few of those stories captured in a single frame, I hope you enjoy them…
Also, people often ask me a whether the people know they are being photographed or not. Although I am very close to them, I remain invisible as much as possible. Most of the time they do not know they are being photographed. The point is not to disrupt the story and ruin the shot. If they notice me after I take the picture, I simply explain to them that I am a street photographer and I am capturing slices of everyday life on the streets. They are usually very flattered by it.
I make a point to never photograph anyone in a embarrassing or vulnerable situation. It’s all about seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary and respecting my subjects at all times. None of these images were staged in any way or they would not qualify as candid street photographs…
