In her series 365 Street Portraits, London-based Polish photographer Iwona Pinkowicz has set herself the challenge of taking an intimate street portrait every single day, capturing a diverse and interesting mix of people as they go about their daily lives in London.
She explained: “After spending some time secretly photographing people on the street, I decided that I wanted to interact with my subjects and learn something about them before taking more intimate photos. And that’s how the idea of 365 Street Portraits was born. I believe that many people in today’s world, particularly in cities, tend to get caught up in the fast pace of life and rarely spare time to interact with one another. I wanted to change that for myself and use photography as a vehicle to achieve it.
“I have been shooting every single day since the beginning of January and have met a rich variety of people so far. I’ve also been quite taken aback and pleasantly surprised by how open and willing most people have been to having their portrait taken.”
