Q: how do I search for my name?

A: Do you know?

Henri Cartier-Bresson most influenced me by teaching me to trust my instincts, to listen to the voice in the back of my head that says ‘Yes!’

He once said, “I’m not responsible for my photographs. Photography is not documentary, but intuition, a poetic experience. It’s drowning yourself, dissolving yourself and then sniff, sniff, sniff—being sensitive to coincidence. You can’t go looking for it; you can’t want it, or you won’t get it. First you must lose yourself. Then it happens.

This is one of those photographs I barely remember taking. When I looked over the photographs I took that day, there it was. When I am doing street work, I do not think too much about what is in front of me. I try to shoot whatever grabs my attention without analyzing why. Reason kills inspiration.
