The project "Merge" started when i got into street photography after i discovered Matt Stuarts work in 2014. His unique style has a big influence how i watch the things that happen on the streets and i belive it even changed the way how i move in a big crowd of people during a rush hour. I always thought its interesting that photography gives us the possible to recreate a new reality in a way how we want to see it. Like using different layers to create two dimensional objects or the opportunity to obscure people faces to anonymize them. I began to see the streets as some kind of photographic playground. So ive started to explore the streets for situations and moments when a subject/object became one with thier environment.
By that way i don’t try to force new pictures. What i do is being patient and attentive.
Both goodnesses are well known from the street photography.
