Walking the streets, searching for that certain something - an incongruous juxtaposition of people and everyday objects, a compelling marriage of light and shadow, the passion, fear, love and despair of everyday life - observing, experiencing, and perhaps capturing some small slice of the magic and wonder that exists in our world. That's what I try to photograph.
Dancers and boxers in Havana, jockeys in Clonakilty, border guards in Nicosia, carpet-salesmen in Istanbul and taxi-drivers in Cairo. Murphy's in Baltimore, Weissbier in Berlin, Brunello in San Quirico and limoncello in Siracusa. The adrenaline rush of a barely-in-control crowd of Easter celebrants in Barrafranca, the sense of history following the path of the Berlin Wall, the faded glory of old Havana and the companionship of good friends. These are some of the experiences photography has brought me.
This book is a collection of pictures from places I have visited over the last 5 years.
