About Michael Bakouch

I'm Michaël, a photographer focused on people in different places. The streets are my medium. So what is "street photography?" Street Photography is an art. It communicates the human condition in public places, within or without urban environments. The presence of the street is not necessary. Its people and or objects can be absent. The environment in which the image is projects the essence of human character. You will discover through my lens how I capture a city, its people and moments. A picture speaks a thousand words Its reality is untouchable, transparent and invisible to our fixed and restrictive fields of vision. (Michaël Bakouch) Contact: Website | More Posts
