Oliver Raschka says, 'The World Is Not Enough At Seven O`Clock In The Morning',
No staging, no posing. Snapshots from real life, at home, while playing, after school, at sports, during shopping... As a silent observer, I feel the daily here and now of my children. Not as a father, but as a photographer. A visual sociology of childhood in dramatic and engaging black and white images. Here, the window is a reflection of the past, the present, and the future.

For children, life is an adventure every day. But what is it like to be a child? What was it like to be a child? When you don’t have to worry about yesterday or tomorrow? When you just live for the moment? For adults childhood often seems like a desirable and endlessly ongoing time in life full of love, joy and safety, but from a child’s perspective it is also a rollercoaster of emotions, an eternal struggle between the child’s dependence and need for autonomy, self-discovery, fear, happiness, pain, hope and self-doubt.

Often the emotional state of a child suddenly changes at a moment’s notice. But it is everyday life that determines the lives of my children. I try to capture these unique moments in an honest way, as they come up in a natural manner. I don’t ask my sons to pose for me. As I keep a camera on hand as often I can, I am able to record their life in a fluid way. For me, this long-term project is about the core of (street) photography: to capture the transitory in the contemporary, to find the extraordinary in the ordinary and thus to allow new perspectives on the known and finally to give subjective insights into a young family life that are universal at the same time. So these images are candid — not staged — but always unique."

BREAK by Paul Matzner
(Click on image for larger view)

Paul Matzner says, "My passion is to make images of people just being themselves, relating to each other or their environment. I admire Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose work has been called “the poetry of human encounters on the street.” That’s a beautiful description that serves as my inspiration. Life is full of discovery and I hope viewers
experience that in my photography.

Father, husband, dog owner, photographer, music lover, ... I have lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin all my life but have traveled to the South Pacific, Western Europe, South America, and 48 states of the USA. I also spend time in New York City each year to do street photography.

I am honored that my fine art photography has been juried into numerous shows, and my work is in the collection of the Racine Art Museum. My stock images have been licensed through Alamy for many publications, textbooks, and corporate websites."

UNTITLED 1 by Richard Omier

Richard Omier says, "I consider myself a street photographer. I was born and currently live in the city of Portland, OR and not surprisingly my work captures different parts of the city. I'm interested in many types of photography, but living in a city I find it somewhat inescapable to not shoot the city itself. My work ends up being a blend of street, minimal, documentary, architecture, and decay."

ANOTHER TIME IN BERLIN by Robert Sadin

Robert Sadin says, "Everything fades over time, especially memory. They are after all simply reflections of what we think we saw, felt, touched, or tasted. Sometimes my memories  appear clear. Sharp. Other times they jumble. Grow confused. Memories are to the mind what reflections are to windows: fleeting.  
 
These images were taken on the streets of Berlin and Ischia, Italy. They are part of my experience as a tourist walking lost, barely able to communicate with people around me, overstimulated by cacophonies of unfamiliar sights and sounds, and deeply entranced by it all. They reflect my wonder and confusion. Joy and fear. The reality and illusion of those moments. They’re windows into my memories. Reflections of my past. Real, yet fading.
  
After graduating from art school with almost no life experience and only middling-level skills, I quickly gravitated into a successful career in technology education and software product marketing. All the while I continued dabbling as a creative hobbyist.

In 2012 my passion for visual expression was reawakened during a visit to Berlin, Germany, where I shot over 800 photographs of the city’s ubiquitous grafitti, street murals, and bohemian enclaves. Shortly after returning to the U.S. I left corporate life to devote myself to creative expression through digital photography. 

These are just a small sample of the extensive portfolio I continue to build with every new day, every new experience, and every new idea."
