Why I take pictures? I’ve always been afraid of this question. Not because I have no answer for it, but much the contrary: It's just that my answer could last as long as forever! One explanation is that I’ve been working as an advertising copywriter for 20 years. So, I like to say that I work with words and relax with images.

But photography is also an excellent exercise in creativity. Because it takes being creative without actually creating anything at all . In fact, you can only use the things that surround you. You depend completely on things like how people move, light conditions, the right distance and so on. So, what’s your part in this “expression of creativity”? To just be fast and press the button at the right moment. It can also be called “Luck”. Well, since I bought my first Leica camera, in 2010, that’s what I've become: a lucky guy.

Enjoy viewing the photos as much as I've enjoyed taking them.
