About Stan De Zoysa

My initial love for street photography began when I first saw pictures made by my father-in-law made in 1987, after a Beatrice concert in Budapest, Hungary. I was in my mid-thirties and my mind was blown away to find out how one can make the whole world around you a candid studio. Hence a new chapter in my life began. I was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1980 and have been living in Barcelona for the past 19 years. I work as a Logistics Engineer as a profession. When it comes to my work in street photography, I see each and every situation as a single unrepeatable moment in life at a given time, thus my work has no connection with each and other photos. Images should be viewed and observed as a unique frozen moment of time, individually. I'm drawn to humour and coincidences in the streets although subtle and melancholy moments capture my attention when I'm out and about shooting.
