My name is Paul Mei, born in 1964 and raised in Athens, Greece. In 1989 I earned my Bachelor of Science in Applied Computer Systems from Brunel University, London, UK. I have been involved with photography since my early 20s. In 2016 this interest turned into a deep passion, when I came across the documentary on Vivian Meier’s life and work. Since then I have been delving into the world of street photography, familiarizing myself with the work of international photographers. During this quest I came to appreciate the work of several Israeli street photographers. My curiosity created an urge to visit Israel. Ever since my first trip, in January 2018, I felt an affinity that immediately bonded me with this country. For every frequent visit ever since I have been privileged to meet many charismatic Israeli photographers with whom I have established an excellent rapport. My association with them has given me the opportunity to hone and develop my street photography skills.
I consider the photo on the left as my first street photo. Since then I have been taking a lot more and met many street photographers, either in person or through Facebook. The inspirations from a few are very strong and I thank them for that. My page will be constantly updated with new work and I hope to attract a lot of street photography enthusiasts. The goal is to share our work, ideas and most important of all to meet in person and have great time together. Please share and enjoy this wonderful trip.
