The Sneaky Photographer.


It was in my street photography where I first noticed the uncomfortable feeling I had towards photographing people in the street. I had the perception that I violated something from them.

This idea of violation keeps coming back in my series Model Looking for Photographer, Pisa Wallpaper and the movies I made. In these projects I hide that I’m a photographer, use someone else’s photos or sneakily film people.

This feeling shaped my approach in the streets so much that it influenced my way of looking. I literally started to hide behind people.


I decided that, since this fear had such a strong influence, to start using it. I took away the fear of violation by asking the subject beforehand if I could take their photo. After that I staged my sneaky approached.
