Peter Kool keeps it quiet simple, be it his words or his street photographs. At times these photographs make us wonder how cool and simple street photography may be. There is this delicate Peter touch of humor to these photographs, which makes us curious about the making of it. Peter tries to keep it flat by sticking to the basics and the composition with these pictures just adds merits to the concept and the final feel conveyed. His way of searching or capturing a frame within a street is unique and that could well be one of the reasons for his excellence.
Let us get to listen more from Peter himself about his style of photography and his various thoughts towards this genre.
A short Introduction about yourself?
Born 1953 in the Netherlands. Seduced by a Belgian beauty who lured me to her country for marriage in 1973. Studied photography at the academy of Sint-Niklaas (1980-1985).
What makes Street Photography so special for Peter?
Like most of us, I like to observe other people, but the observing alone is not enough for me. I want to catch them in a photo; the aim is to satisfy my creative urge.
When I’m photographing, people and other nice things are only subjects to make a photograph. It’s a bit of give and take; you take a photo and give something back what’s nice to look at.
