This series of pictures from Vilnius is really my first serious attempt to shoot pictures with a phone. It was not something I had planned. In fact I brought a couple of analog cameras and black and white film with me, but never came in the mood to shoot them. Sometimes the city and the circumstance decides the medium and the pace. I’m always responsive to my feelings and ready to overthrow whatever I’ve planned if my mind decides there’s a better way. This time the story called for another approach and an immediate confirmation of what my heart saw.

    Contrary to much of my earlier work which depends on detail, phone photography forces you to concentrate your motif in a sketchy manner to essentials and a strong simple expression. This time that was exactly what I aimed for.
