In your bag number 104, Brian Sparks
Todays bag comes to you from Stockholm, a city that I would love to visit someday. So lets see what Brian has in his bag for us…
I am a 37 year old Irish guy currently living in Stockholm, Sweden. I just shoot for fun and spend most of my time shooting on the streets. Classical composition, straight lines and unusual characters are what I look out for most. For inspiration I look to some of the new breed of street photographers like Matt Stuart, Trent Parke, David Gibson, Nick Turpin, Siegfried Hansen but I also love the old school HCB, Meyerowitz, Winogrand, Erwitt etc.
I normally just post my stuff on flickr – you can see it here www.flickr.com/photos/briansparks/

A brilliant bag from Brian, it is great to see all of this, though god only knows how you lug all of that around. I would be like a hunchback.
