Recently I stumbled across a new set of photos from Brooklyn based designer and photographer Eric Kwan Tai Lau. Though primarily a digital shooter, surprise, surprise — he’s been returning to film! Regardless of format, his street portraits in Bushwick really caught my eye and he thankfully has allowed me to share a few of them here.
Eric has also posted a few of his thoughts about picking up the Leica M6 rangefinder over on his blog in a post entitled “Back to Analog.” He’s considering doing a longer-term project shooting street portraits in Brooklyn, and I can’t support this idea enough! His portraits are fantastic. Bravo, Eric! Can’t wait to see more. For more, keep up with Eric over on his Flickr stream!
