    I LOVE these portrait/photo journalistic photos. Oh the stories behind each one.. they get me asking questions , lots of them, and that to me marks a FAB photo! I would love to know what city /area these were taken if possible. Thanks! Great work!!!

    Incredible work, fantastic rich lighting, superb play of contrasts (girl with a pillow, boy by the pool!!!!), more than the awesome composition balance and finally what a mood, maestro! What to say, handling street people on such level of concentration is beyond real.

    beautiful, normally I don’t love staged photos but these somehow still seem so natural, I don’t know, something about them
