Street Photography Now (X): Gus Powell

b. New York City, 1974, lives in Brooklyn, New York (p151)

'I try to be ready for those moments that have a subtle comedy or tragedy to them; moments when strangers come together for a split second and are rendered inseparable through a photograph. I'm usually not trying to be ironic or pointing at, making fun of something. I'm pretty much always responding to something that has seduced me or that I've been moved by.'

'I'm not an aggressive person so I am not really up for jumping four feet in front of a person with a 28mm lens and flash... I just enjoy taking pleasure in responding to a situation with an open heart and some wit.'
