A selection of photos by San Francisco, California-based photographer and video editor Auston Marek. Rooted in “a slower vein of the street photography tradition,” Marek’s practice involves long walks with his camera. Losing himself in daydreams, he pays attention to the personal themes and preoccupations that break through the haze of his thoughts to trigger a photograph. Shooting in public spaces in cities and towns, he looks for meaning in what he describes as “the sad, funny, beautiful, absurd, and banal habit we’ve created for ourselves.”
“For me, one of the highest ambitions is to convey that every moment can be, and ultimately is, important,” he explains. “All life is substantial and life is everywhere. Go observe it and take notes.”
