T H E GR P R O J E C T
A Journey to the past ...
My journey into street photography began in 2013, when I became a Ricoh GR Ambassador. Up to this point I never had a GR in my hands and I wasn't sure if a small compact camera can get me the results I needed. The Ricoh GR quickly became my travel companion and I slowly realized that I don't need to lug around my big cameras anymore. I can savely say that no other camera changed the way I photograph as much as the GR. It also forced me to photograph with a 28mm focal lenght, which at that time was super uncomfortable for me. But 6 years later, it became my all time favourite focal lenght and a signature of my photography style. I'm a camera gear head and so it was no wonder that I couldn't resist exploring a new direction with another popular street photography camera in 2017, the Fujifilm X100F. A camera that also deserves a big place in my heart but is not here to stay. Even though I went into other directions with Fujifilm, Ricoh was still waiting for me to come back and welcomed me with open arms. Now with the new Ricoh GRIII I am proud to be back as a GR Ambassador and my journey into my past begins ...
