Photographer Pau Buscató is great for being in the right place at the right time. For the past four years, he has been directing his lens to city streets in search of magic. His mystical style of photography highlights two (or more) everyday events and makes them look magical because they are together. For example, Buscató stands at a right angle to capture instances when a dog’s nose fits perfectly with a hawk’s, or when a person’s head disappears from a smoke.
Buscató enjoys exploring these opportunities. “It’s a sport for me, the city is my playground,” he writes. It ensures that he is young at heart and does not become a frustrated adult. “We build walls to appear stronger, more serious, adults, so we’re leaving the part that made us little kids, the part that made our garden a wonderful land, and the part that made that tree a fortress.” The ability to see the world through “a child’s eyes” is at the heart of his writing. “Play, for me, is to be aware of this moment, but to be completely open to anything that happens.” It is this attitude that gives his photographs unobtrusive ease and makes them pleasing to look at.
