Niles occasionally travels the world as a roving international street photographer.

Why street you ask? Because it's documentary photography - being the candid photographing of unfamiliar subjects usually in urban environments. All walks of society, regardless of economic class, share the public spaces and one documents the human condition via capturing those chance encounters. Your internal reality will reflect elements of yourself back to you in your external environment, so documenting those “random” incidents is of great reward since there are no coincidences.

Shooting street is his main form of still work. Using the experiences of looking through a rangefinder camera as a way to look back at himself. It’s a life therapy technique Niles does, sometimes with others but mostly alone, to capture the light of anyone he finds interesting or compelling.  Portfolio below and full blog at Philosophical Photography.
