My name is Roy Rozanski. I am an aspiring street photographer.
Born and raised in Israel. My main “hunting ground” is Tel Aviv, which has highly versatile street life packed full of different vibes which is impressive on its own especially for such a small city and in comparison to some other big metropolis. I am influenced and inspired by great photographers such as Martin Parr and Elliott Erwitt and I try my best to incorporate their style into my own photography.
I like to shoot with mirrorless cameras or compact ones (currently own Fujifilm X-T1) with very wide prime lenses. Like the famous Robert Capa’s saying “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough” I try to get as close as I can without the use of zoom and it comes with its own perils since people react differently when you get close to their private space.
I don’t care much for compositional rules, leading lines and the rule of thirds. I am only interested in capturing a story or emotion in my shots.
