I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

I like very much this panoramic view, the colors, the contrast between the false world of the publicity and the workers, and the man looking at you in the center, very nice.
Have a good sunday!

Another fine piece of work, showing the interaction between ads and the "real world." I particularly like the pairing on the far right.

Beautiful panoramic presentation in this picture . Hm, 'Armani collection' add on a wall, on one side, and these workers on the other side. What a contrast ! This is a presentation of life too ! Rich and Poor !

Very great framing, I like the superposition between the workers and the Armani's models in the background.
