This month we feature the work of Amol Kshatriya, a talented photographer and architect from London. Amol loves meeting strangers on the streets and makes great ginger tea! Here we explore London in its shades of grey.
As told to STW
I love walking and observing things around me! Be it a child playing with his dad on a train, a girl walking in the rain without an umbrella, her hair blowing with the wind or an old man sitting on a bench reading the newspaper. It’s always fascinating to watch people and places, in their elements. Recently, I began recording what I see, of course with my camera. It’s amazing what the random situations or happenings you find yourself in, can do to your mind, if you manage to become part of it. For me it happens when I look at things through the lense of my camera. I am no more an observer but a part of the story, which is about to unfold in front of me.
These are some photos taken while wandering around London this year. They show people, places, emotions and life as it happened. The captions of these photos are merely thoughts that came to my mind as I took the scene in; simultaneously in my mind and digital darkroom. Enjoy reliving these moments with me.
