Rudi Rincker: The street is where it’s at.

Recently, with his Leica in hand, he has discovered that the most interesting subject matter is all around him, sometimes right in front of him.

What interests Rudi, these days, is capturing life at street level, photographing people going about their business, doing what they do every day.

While travelling, Rudi is constantly on the lookout for these photo opportunities, what he calls, “interesting moments”. When he sees them, he captures them, usually in B&W, preferring minimal processing for maximum reality.
