Whether he’s taking street portraits or shooting candidly, street photographer Pete Zelewski is driven by his love of London and a fascination with trying to capture the quirkiness, vibrancy and chaos that pulses through the city.
Zelewski is originally from Detroit but is currently living in London, soaking up the surroundings with his lens and producing eye-catching photographs. In his street photographs, Zelewski captures uncanny similarities between people and their surroundings and brings together striking color interactions in split second moments.
‘I specialise in portraiture but I don’t photograph subjects, I photograph the way they make me feel.’
‘I love being a casual observer, camera in hand, wandering around urban environments waiting for a unique situation to unfold in front of me. For me there’s nothing more exciting than capturing that fleeing moment when the ordinary becomes the extraordinary.’
Zelewski’s ‘People of Soho’ project is currently on show at the Freud Cafe Bar and Gallery until May 26.
