When I first came across the work of street photographer Pau Buscató, I simply couldn't believe my eyes. How could one person, in one lifetime, stumble across so many intriguing situations and, not only capture them at just the right time, but also from the perfect angle? It didn't seem possible, surely they were staged or manipulated in Photoshop?

But seemingly not - Buscató is just blessed with the uncanny knack of spotting the clever, amusing, and aesthetically pleasing things most of us miss, making him one of the best street photographers around today.

"It's a very open process that demands full awareness and fresh eyes, to see the ordinary things of our everyday not just for what they are, but also for what they can become when photographed," he write on his website. "It’s a game for me, and the city is my playground."

Pau, who's Spanish-born but now lives in Norway, travels all over the world to take his photos, and it's starting to pay off. After contacting him via email, he informs me that he's currently very busy, answering questions for 4 or 5 publications who are keen to feature his work. "I don't know why but there's been a kind of 'media storm' over my photography in the last days," he says. All we can say is, he truly deserves all the attention that's coming his way.
