OLIVER WARREN

Street Photography

Expanding on my observational documentary heritage, street photography stills have become something of an obsession of mine.

 

With my Leica M now permanently welded to my neck, I wonder the world, blessed with a job that lays a lot of international travel my way, capturing stills of those I pass, their lives and thoughts laid bare, unawares of their image being taken.

 

Through Instagram I have coupled these documentary stills with short fictional takes on the lives and loves of those I capture.

The snowflakes masked his tear-stained face. Not that he cared. He wore his compassion with pride and his outrage vocal: Devos, Sessions, Bannon… really? 📸

I believe it, more than ever. 📸

What waited at home was almost worse than that which he’d left at school. 📸
