“My photographs don't go below the surface. They're readings of the surface. I have great faith in surfaces. A good one is full of clues..”

The Street-Portraits Project sheds light on the stories hidden within our everyday attire. It delves into the clothing choices and our individual and collective identities, exploring how the ancient ritual of dressing up expresses our deep need for belonging and defines our social groups. It does not endeavor to define these groups but to inspire viewers and ignite the storytelling that unfolds in our minds as we observe people in the street. By combining portraits from a variety of places it also reflects on diversity within and across contemporary societies.
