Berlin is a truly magical city, rich is history and brimming with culture and romance, it manages to be both classically European and thoroughly modern. Drenched in character and bizarre tales, this ever-changing capital makes for wonderful photography fodder. London local Hannah Parvaz takes to the German streets to capture their gritty, creative brilliance.
Photographer Hannah Parvaz has taken to the charming streets of London countless times to capture the intricacies of big city life. We had a quick chat to her about why she picked up this camera and loves this city.
Can you tell me a little about yourself - where did you learn to take photographs?
I started taking pictures when I was 11, and taught myself everything I can do. Taking photos was always more of an obsession than a hobby, capturing everything, improving my imagery with every shutter snap, reading about things online, discovering how exposure or ISO or the slightest change in anything can affect a photograph.
Why do you love photography?
I love photography because I can capture moments. Tiny vignettes of life within an image. I love my memories, and my photographs are just that, my visual memories. They are all personal, even commissioned things I pour my personality into.
Why do you enjoy photographing London?
London is its own character, ever developing and changing and never having the same people in the same place at any time. London is something that can look so different on different days. This is why I love London. It accepts everyone and displays everyone, and my camera helps me capture that.
