Greta Dalen is the quiet observer. During the Blue Hour photo workshop in Villajoyosa, Spain, last spring she wandered the narrow streets of this small-town; quietly watching life as it was unfolding before her. She approaches her subjects with respect and honesty. Greta is a street photographer in a classical sense – at least when she photographs on the street. She waits and waits and then in a glimpse of a moment she captures that little interaction between people, that little movement that brings magic to a picture. She keeps her distance, let people do whatever they do, and let daily life go by as it does. She is not intrusive. However, she captures those intimate moments, those private interaction that creates captivating images. Greta doesn’t believe in tricks or enhancements, but in capturing the right moment while focusing on entrancing content.

What an amazing job Greta did by just quietly observing. The first photo with the kids was the favorite. They were not posing but seem to playfully be photographed. Wonderful.
