Street Photography Quotes (IX)

"As you might have noticed, many of last century's Paris classic street photographs involved kids. Unluckily, many families have nowadays moved to the suburbs looking for more affordable lodging and a better quality of life for their kids. Offices, hotels, stores and rich foreigners have slowly pushed the popular masses out of their city. As a result, you don't see that many groups of kids wandering downtown anymore."

Street Photography Quotes (VIII)

"There are mainly two different ways that I shoot. The first one is random, meaning that I take long walks in a part of town and just let scenes come to me. In a large city like Paris, something will always happen at some point of time and often, great scenes unfold when youleast expect it. On the opposite, I might go to a special spot and hang around a block for a couple of hours. For example, I shoot a lot on the Avenue of Les Champs-Elysée where I have a few spots that I especially like. "
