My name is Ronn Thwaites and I’m a street photographer based in London
I use a simple, stripped back, minimalist approach to photography; my current ‘One Camera One Lens’ set up consists of a Canon EOS 100D, Canon 50mm prime lens and photo editing tools such as Snapseed
Black & white images are my preferred method of recording what I see and I’m sure this was influenced by growing up in the 70’s with a black & white television!
I’m a great fan of the principles of Psychogeography and often just ‘Drift’ around the streets of London taking photos of the spaces, places, people and things that catch my eye
My study of Stoic philosophy has been an underlying foundation to my work for a number of years and informs a large part my approach towards photography
My photos often focus on the odd, weird, lost and unusual things that I see and I tend not to take too many photographs of people when out on the streets. When I do take them I like angles that mean they can’t be easily identified!
I prefer the things that people often walk by without a second glance; the lost things, the out-of-place, the strange and unusual
Thanks for looking and reading
