German street photographer Siegfried Hansen finds the most amusing stories on the street. As he walks around, he looks for interesting angles and then composes his shots to tell city stories. In looking through his work, you’ll find that he’s been everwhere from Venice to Tokyo, snapping away authentic moments where the people are not posed but rather just going about their daily lives. A nice reminder that life gives us unexpected moments and sometimes an illusion or two when we stop to look around.
