Welcome! Michel Leclerc street photographer here...

As street photogrAPHER I capture Fleeting moments/UNUSUAL PLACES/emotions

As a street photographer I look at the world in a different way. Sometimes a moment that lasts a few seconds left me with an indelible memory. So, I captured them with my camera and I would like to share with you the emotions I felt.

For me every thing is conducive to taking good photos. Thus, everywhere I go my camera is in a shoulder strap. It follows that with my photos I try to tell stories. But as a street photographer I'm not looking for aesthetics at any costs. According to me color and light remain fundamental because there are part of life.

I'm Michel Leclerc, street photographer

I am French, born in the North of France, near Lille, 70 years ago. My training is engineer and most of my professional career has been spent in IT. Today, I am retired and I'm passionate about photography especially street photography.

When I was young, I spent all my weekends in the cellar of my family’s house that I had set up as a photo lab. Therefore, my photos were dried in the kitchen in front of my mother's annoyance.

Above all, I photographed what surrounded me : my family, street scenes in my city, our vacation days by the North sea. Already young, I was a street photographer.  

My grandfathers were coal miners. In addition, my maternal grandparents were Polish. In the 1920’s, they emigrated to France. Subsequently I didn't know much about Poland and they I was  retired I had an intense need to know my origins.
