Paul Buscato perfectly timed photos are lively and they managed to capture the beauty of a moment and our everyday life. Paul Buscato shots were taken during his international travels to the UK, the US, India, and other lively countries.
“There is a strong sense of play in my Street Photography. It’s a game for me, and the city is my playground. As we grow into adulthood we tend to lose our sense of play. And that ability to fantasize and see the ordinary through a child’s eyes is an essential part of my work. Play, to me, is all about being aware of the moment, and yet totally open to whatever happens. A surprise. A discovery. An eureka moment after connecting the dots.
The photos shown here are part of my endless (and only) body of work that I call ‘Hopscotch’. The name refers to the well-known street game in which children outline a series of rectangles on the ground and hop through them tossing a small object. And a quite similar process takes place in my Photography: through candid observation I have to pick and frame small pieces of the everyday and, through an idea (metaphor, symbol or a simple joke) try to elevate them to something else than the ordinary.” – Paul Buscato
