"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."
~ Andre Kertesz

Gérard from Marseille, France

I don't speak a "great" english, but i trie to honor you.
Your work is a great one and reminds me Erwit, Arbus, Davidson, with your own sensibility.
I have yet done street photographies and I know it's very hard. Here we feel you love your models.
Du travail d'artiste
