This image is part of a series and an ongoing project called “The decisive movement”.
In this project I work with a small pinhole camera, made from a matchbox, which I use make images which are the exact opposite of what Cartier-Bresson called “the decisive moment”; instead of pressing the shutter button at exactly the right instant, these images aim to capure not the subjects as such, but their motion.
I am aiming to become one with the simple camera I am using and move it along with the motion of the subjects, opening and closing the shutter according to subject’s motion, hence creating an image of the flow of time in it.
Street crosser is the story of a once fashionable man, still dressing up in his three pice suit and hat, while only slowly pacing the sunny streets of his memories, unknown to me, the passer-by.
