Selfie

Brant Thompson, learning to swim, Taggar

My love of photography began when I discovered my father’s Zeiss Ikon camera. I remember being captivated by the camera itself, and by the photographs when they were developed, weeks after they were taken.

 

As my interests changed photography became something I only did when travelling. Years later, taking photographs with my cell phone rekindled my interest in photography. A real camera came soon after. 

 

As a street photographer, my online alter ego, Random Incident, reflects the randomness of what I photograph as I wander through the city. It is also a reflection on what Henri Cartier-Bresson called the decisive moment:

 

“Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
