Author’s Statement on Beauty

Street art adds beauty and color to our grey urban environment, and gives a new dimension to our ordinary world. Each time I wander down a street and come across a stunning street art piece, I feel impelled to photograph it before it gets damaged or disappears. A way to preserve it.


Olivier Schopfer lives in Geneva, Switzerland. He likes to capture the moment in haiku and photography. His poetry has appeared in numerous online and print journals and anthologies, and his artwork is featured in After the Pause, Gnarled Oak, Otoliths, Sonic Boom, Up the Staircase Quarterly & Window Cat Press.
