The whole point of taking pictures is so that
you don’t have to explain things with words.
– Elliott Erwitt
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.
When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
– Ansel Adams
If I could tell the story in words,
I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.
– Lewis Hine
Photography is the story I fail to put into words.
– Destin Sparks
For me, photography is about wandering, observing and telling stories.
From my early days of photography, I’ve always felt the influence of
André Kertész, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson whose
work demonstrates that profound and universal storytelling is considered art.
– Steve McCurry

Thank you Stevebhai once again
Your photographs speak to me in a way no words ever could! Thank you for opening up the world to all of us and in doing so, show the common threads that bind humanity together.
Wonderful frames! They tell a thousand stories.
Ability to explain “without” words is the essence of essential!

Your pictures let me follow you to every corner of the world. Shock my heart! Thank you!
I love how I keep experiencing coincidences with you and your work. It started a couple years back when you shared a photo on Instagram of a dog laying in the dirt — a photo very similar to one I’d taken back home in Guyana and was contemplating to share that week but was afraid viewers wouldn’t be as moved by it as I was. So many of you Cuba photos remind me of my own too. When I was thinking of going to Mexico I stumble upon some of your work from there, and just last weekend I wanted to share my photos from Peru in a blog but had no words to go with them and so felt really driven to share them with the very same Ansel quote (I haven’t yet because a little piece of me feels like I’m just being too lazy to gather the words). All this to say, I absolutely love and admire your work. You are definitely a marvelous creator and a role model I thoroughly enjoy having.
A marvellous, very humane set of photographic stories
The images touched a deep chord within & put butterflies in my stomach.
I was rather gutted to have missed your exhibition in Prague back in 2018, It has literally just closed for the day and we were departing the next day so the opportunity was lost, I actually posted an image of the closed Gallery on Instagram (I guess that was my story for the day) – glad to watch and learn from you here on WP.
