“I’m an observer, fascinated by people’s relationships. My street photography aims to capture our interrelatedness with the environment. Through portraiture I try to capture the essence of character. I’m inspired by artists such a Lynette
Yiadom Boakye who depicts people, full of energy, creativity and light.”
