Amazing art with Youri part one

With starting my street portraits project I get to know new people every day. Sometimes there are stories behind that I want to share. So I was walking down the Donaukanal close to Schwedenplatz to get one last portrait for that day. As always I was focused on the people around me while walking down the street. At one point I figured everybody was looking to the left. So I did the same and what I saw impressed me a lot. “Somebody” was doing an huge amazing painting with spray cans, after watching him for a while I knew I gotta do a portrait of that guy. And I’m happy Youri asked me to also capture him during the process of creating his art.
This is called part one because I shot some pictures with my analog camera, this takes some time to develop and I’m leaving Austria soon to visit a friend in Sweden. I didn’t want to wait that long, so here are the first pictures of Youri’s great work, be sure to visit his website too. Hope to see you soon again in Vienna
