What keeps us moving?
Everybody has his own story, his own goals in life. We, as city residents, are constantly in a relative motion with respect to each other without paying attention to our neighbors because there is no connection between us. However, at a given moment and for a very brief instant the time stops and our lives become entangled, creating esthetic scenes. This state does not last long and few seconds later people have vanished. Behind the street corner or through an open door. But to go where? And for which purpose? The beauty of this mystery is that nobody can ever answer these questions.
These photographs are moments captured while strolling on the streets of various cities in the world during my travels. Furtive moments, appearing within few seconds and disappearing almost immediately after clicking the shutter, like they never existed.
Photos in color only.
