Still Moments from the River of Time - Mikael Good

Still Moments from the River of Time

I usually work as a documentary photographer and reporter and i´m probably best known for my photos from China, Latvia and Russia. But i like to take snapshots of the people i meet on the streets when ever i can. Even if some people might call it street photography i rather call it street documentary photo since i try to capture the still moments from the river of time in a documentary way.

I prefer to work in black and white. To quote Robert Frank; "Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected".
