I am an art dealer and have been an amateur photographer all my life. I contribute on a regular basis to one Flickr brief, SPNC, as ‘Renate’s Mate’ and other groups occasionally. I am a street photographer because I live in the centre of a city, but my images range far further, including travel, plants and gardens. I regularly visit art galleries and have an ongoing series on them, the Frieze Art Fair and London Town. Flickr groups and photographers have broadened my outlook and continue to inspire and educate me.
