  1. I look forward to reading the writings that accompany your photos. Each time I read what your write I think I know more about you. Keep it coming. Thanks

    1. Thanks Alan, I’m always happy to hear from you! I suppose a lot of the times it is more about the writing than the photos. Blogging is a good venting conduit and I try to use it as such. Keep coming back!

  2. Beautiful shots… I especially love the one of the old man’s hand ๐Ÿ™‚ And I agree with you… hands can tell you so much about a person.

    1. Thanks! I don’t take many of them anymore as I feel like it is something that is done too much and usually as a cop out. But, sometimes in a situation like this it felt fitting.

  3. I’ll resonate your reasonings regarding utilising a compact camera to shoot an image that is on a more personal level as compared to a more solid dslr. In fact i find it a breeze to use an android phone to capture street photography, it does not intimidate the subject instantly. A click on the button to capture that precise moment, ignoring the technical part. Continue to do what you belief in. Time will set the change in future.

    1. Thanks Ricky, and I agree. I don’t own anything very big anymore and rarely use those. Not necessary. Especially with film compacts where you can print as large as you’d like.

  4. I really enjoy watching your photos. Not only because of your style, but also because of the fact that they represent places physically so far away from me -even though there isn’t anything destinguishing from Seoul, it’s the whole idea of it.

    1. Thanks, I get that. I know I rarely show much of Seoul in the traditional sense. I suppose, it just doesn’t fit my eye anymore. Glad you appreciate the photos none-the-less.

  5. Beautiful images. And what you’ve written about them – and about the process – is just as good. There’s plenty of metaphoric food for thought in some of your observations….but in the meantime, most – no, make that all – of your photographs here … get better when one takes the time to look at them a second (or third) time.

    I really like the strong contrast, dark edges and vignetting of your photographs, it further adds to the intimacy you talk about.

    This post comes at a great time for me. I have too many cameras and have been looking at ways to hone down and simplify. Two days ago I decided to set myself a new challenge – Buy a digital compact on eBay for less than ยฃ10 and make some amazing photographs with it. One ยฃ9.87 purchase later, it’s on its way…

    My first four, maybe even five years of photography was all done with Sony Ericsson/ Cybershot camera phones – they’re capable of some excellent images, especially for such tiny lenses.

    Love the story of your Cybershot – found in your aunt’s car!

    Thanks for the post, I’ll be checking out more of your work.

  7. Hi,
    i`m Emma, an italian girl. For my street i use only my phone, an HTC one. It allows me being close to my subject taking intimate photos without scaring him. As the disadvantagies are the low quality and the discomfort to shoot at the hight sun because i don’t see the screen. Despite that, it works very well.
    Then I agree with shooting with a small camera, for that reasons and for a space and weight question.
    I love your way to shoot, intimate and your b/w. Great article!
    Greetings from Como lake, Italy!!
