Gritty Urban Portraits Focus on Life Throughout San Francisco

Amateur photographer Troy Holden uses a snapshot approach throughout San Francisco to capture images that are filled with life and personality. While wandering the streets, the skilled photographer imagines the world through his camera lens and knows just when to click to record the perfectly rare and candid moments.

As most street photographers do, Holden leaves his work up to chance and documents the people whom he comes across through unplanned interactions. He finds expressive ways to narrow in on one subject at a time, singling them out from their surroundings and quickly drawing the viewer in to the unposed, black and white narratives. Holden's work is a gritty representation of urban life filled with powerful emotions that emanate from each photograph.
