A photo book, a cinematic journey. Places, faces, movements.
I like to walk in city streets, from sideway to centre stage, through architectures of people, loneliness and chances. I love to imagine stories with unlikely characters, people I notice, things I note, atmosphere, lights. Happy people, sad people, handsome and ugly people fascinate me. Humans. I recognize in Tarek a similar fascination.
He applies his cinematic eye to spaces of observation that represent precision. A precision of place and aesthetics that draws me into a situation that defies rationality, but involves me completely in a shared obsession.
My subjects, as Tarek's, shine and move out of the crowd, as I follow them with my imagination. For a few moments, or, if I sit in a cafe, maybe for minutes.
