Unknown and Stylish People Whom I Couldn’t Let Escape

There are people who we don’t know from Adam, but who catch our eye like a magnet because of their presence and style. I never hesitate. If I have my camera, I ask them if I can photograph them, and I don’t let them escape!

Madrid city center

It’s called street style and I think it’s a good way to name it. You are walking on the street and bump into people who catch your eye as if they had a magnet. It is not only because you like their clothes. Not at all. It’s something else, something beyond fashion, it’s their style that calls your attention.

When this happens, I don’t hesitate: ‘can I take a picture of you?’ Most of the time, the answer is positive. Only a few managed to escape. Many a time they ask me why I want to photograph them, but as soon as they see a Lomo, they smile and get ready to be photographed. Sometimes I just steal it.
