This is my first post on Abduzeedo, so let me introduce myself. My name is Daniela. I'm a Brazilian graphic and product designer. In this post I will share some images with you from Brett Walker, a photographer from London, UK.
Brett has some superb black and white portraits, sometimes a bit scary and dark. But the contrast and texture of some of his photos are simply perfect. I highly recommend you visit his Flickr account, http://www.flickr.com/photos/brettwalker/. If you want to know a bit more about Brett Walker, there is a interview with him at http://flickr.com/groups/spotlight_seven/discuss/72157606676964240/
Brett stated that street shooting gives him the opportunity to over come some fear barriers – a chance to exercise some of his demons – that somewhere inside of us all, we know when it’s okay to take a shot and when it’s not, and that the times he gets “caught” are the times that he is desperate to get a shot, and stops following his own rules. Then the subject gets mad and all he can do is apologize, “and go sit in a café and say, fuck”.
