This project was an outgrowth of a documentary project created while in grad school in San Francisco and started with the busker scenes there. Later it continued to several Baltic and European port cities where my ship contracts sent me. These images were shot in the spring, summer and autumn of 2012. Part documentary, part street photography, and part creative portraiture, my goal was to tell stories that helped bring more understanding and dignity to the art and its performers. The project taught me about street life, ingenuity and the value of having a successful performance talent.
This project was also presented on one of my first Adobe Muse sites - published in 2012 - which includes additional images and some as diptychs.
