"To take photographs is to hold one's breath when all faculties converge in the face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1976
The main purpose of me taking photographs is enjoyment.
For me, photography is a passion but not my profession.
My main focus is candid photography.
While I am not limiting myself consciously, most of my images will depict urban sceneries.
My preferred medium is black and white film.
Currently, my 'tool box' consists of three sorts of equipment:
- 35mm rangefinder: Leica M2, Voigtländer Bessa R2m, Voigtländer 35/2.5, Canon 50/1.8 (and an Olympus XA)
- 35mm SLR: Olympus OM-1, OM-2n, OM-4 Ti, Olympus OM Zuikos 24/2.8, 40/2.0, 50/1.2, 85/2.0, 135/3.5
- full frame DSLR: Canon EOS 5d, exclusively used with Olympus OM lenses
