Street Photo of the week by Barry Talis
Barry Talis is a Street Photographer I have been following for a while on Flickr. His work includes surreal flash street photography and wide angle close up shots that really grip the viewer’s attention. He lives and shoots mostly in the capital of Israel, Tel Aviv. Barry has a great understanding of light and knows how to manipulate it to the max. And when I say light, I mean every kind of light. He produces impressive photos with natural light, with a flash and with a combination of both. I think that he must really visualise the result of his photos before he clicks the shutter precisely. He is a photographer with empathy that searches for a part of himself in his subjects. He likes to combine that approach with interesting backgrounds and characters that contrast his main subject. But above all, he is a true ‘natural’ that discovered street photography by accident, or should I say was discovered by street photography by accident!
