Portrait photography has been something I’ve always enjoyed but lately I’ve been drawn to street photography. There’s something about an image which has absolutely no set-up and no direction. The concept of street photography is simple but I believe the results are no less compelling than their composed counterpart. There’s a sense of curiosity that lingers when you see the hardness in someone’s eyes, the exhaustion from the slack in their shoulders or the hostility in their stares. It’s about chance encounters that occur on a daily basis and capturing those slices of everyday life. In Mexico, I saw hard work and I saw struggle, but above all, I saw perseverance.
