Gareth Bragdon is a talented street photographer, who was born in New Hampshire, USA and currently lives in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Gareth loves to photograph on the streets of Edinburgh, he captures stunning candid street portraits of people being flashed in their faces.

I walk the street looking and listening waiting for the next opportunity. I grip my camera and position myself like a heat seeking missile. With only inches separating me and the stranger I quickly lift the camera to my eye and fire.

“The flash ignites and an exposure is made,” Bragdon says. “I have taken their soul. For that brief moment me and my camera became intimate with a stranger.”
