Jury selection

I like the vibrancy of these images; they are full of life. He depicts people up close and rather intimate, on the streets of London. I like the diversity, the different cultures and ethnicities. I like how you see how people alway have the urge to perform their personal culture and taste; to give meaning to the way they dress-up, to show their identity.
