My conscious goal as a photographer, overriding concerns of image clarity and density, was always to try to capture the intimacy and spontaneity of everyday working-class sociability, and I was deeply influence by the “snapshot aesthetic”of my subjects’ own approach to photography, and in particular by the work of documentary photographer Dick Blau.

Dick Blau’s photos are not just a set of pictures, but more or less a living, organic part of the plastic picture of the Romani life and music in Greek Macedonia. It is thanks to these photographs that we can get a better feeling for as unique world that can never be presented by words only.
