Question: why do you shoot street photography?

For myself, it gives me an excuse to live more adventurously, to make visual art through photos, and to connect with other humans!

To prove to myself that I’m capable to create something meaningful to this world.

Since I was a kid and till around 2 years ago (means around 28 yrs of my life) I always wonder why I never able to create anything (from scratch till become a solid object) into this world (like painting, cooking, writing, electronic, kind of that stuff). Fortunately, I found my passion in photography since 2 yrs ago, which is a hobby that I never thought at all before. 

It is street photography that brought me to photography world.  I love the concept of randomness and the fact that I need to find “beauty” from a boring daily life.

What a difficult question to answer, in a good way.

I suppose for me it is a way of making sense of things. It sounds cliche, but there’s just something about taking and entire, chaotic, busy scene and condensing it down, adding and removing things up to the point where you have refined the composition into that tiny box. Its not dissimilar to solving a puzzle; arranging the elements to fit and make sense. 

And then there is the more human side of things.

Photography refines my understanding of why people do what they do and why they are how they are. In my opinion, it teaches me how to view and treat others equally.

For me photography is understanding.

I got into and do street photography because I do not like working. Exploring the world and taking pictures is alot more fun then sitting in an office C:

I may be broke, but I am my own boss and i’m happy C:
