“I stumbled into a boxing gym where a class was just starting, and like everywhere else we stumbled into, we were welcomed kindly. The kids lined up and went through drills by their instructor, as he pumped pride into them, they poured out intensity. This specific kid was having trouble following certain drills so he was singled out put on the spot amongst his friends. He did not seem to enjoy that but channeled his anger towards putting all his might into his movements. The look on his face says it all.”
“I passed this man and his friends walking through the streets. He seemed perfectly dissolved into his environment and there was harmony created between the light, color, and atmosphere. I had to stop and say hello, and like many street conversations, you are welcomed with a smile and a shot of rum, and left feeling buzzed and high off good spirits. ”
“Sometimes I would catch people in their element, so unbothered by whats going on around them, and fully submersed enjoying their moment. Its really an incredible feeling when you point a camera directly at someone and they notice and stare right down the barrel of your lense completely careless, letting you capture them in their truest form. So much pride, such little regard.”
