"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

This photo is great! How did you get that effect so strange? I refer to these reflections, it seems that the scene takes place behind glass, but the person on a bicycle is on this side ... Shocking, disturbing, and mysterious, a very good picture
