Street Photography With A Twinkling Eye By Matt Stuart
Self-taught photographer Matt Stuart walks through the streets for hours taking snapshots of moments that other people might not even notice.
Some of Stuart’s most stunning works reflect the lively streets of his hometown London, collected in his book “All that life can afford“.
Since his career as a photographer on the streets is governed by coincidences and not predictable, Stuart never leaves the house without his camera. On an average he uses about three film rolls per day. As an advice for beginners in street photography Stuart states: “Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic and don’t forget to smile.“ The photographer’s humour is obvious in many of his shots and makes the viewer smile as well.
