“I was meant to be going on holiday to Tokyo, Japan in two weeks time with my wife and 6 month old baby. With the devastation in the country now putting that out of the question, participating in the Charity Print Auctions seemed the very least I could do to help out.” says London based street photographer Stephen Leslie, who is auctioning off a copy of his self published book Snaps.
Stephen who started taking photography seriously about ten years ago, had been working as a TV documentary maker before he began making photographs on a daily basis in order to “keep [his] eye in”.
“I tend to focus on unusual characters and humorous or bizarre situations. I’m a screenwriter by profession, so I tend to look for narratives or faces that tell stories.”
Stephen’s is just one of many Street photography auctions taking place over at the Charity Print Auction for Japan group on flickr, so be sure to check the others out, snag a nice print and donate to a worth cause.
