"Probably The Best Street Photographer In The World Captures Perfectly Timed Shots Of Our Everyday Lives"

Quote
Paul Buscato is a Spain-born and  Norway-based artist, and he has created an ongoing photography series that aim to capture the world through a prism of childlike imagination and play.

On his personal website, Paul has said that he always wished for his work to grow freely without him forcing any direction or themes, ” It’s a game for me, and the city is my playground. As we grow into adulthood we tend to lose our sense of play. We build walls to appear stronger, more serious, more adult; and so we leave behind that part of us that made us kids, the part that turned our backyard into wonderland and that tree into a fortress. And that ability to fantasize and see the ordinary through a child’s eyes is an essential part of my work.”

Yes he appears to be in tune with his environments. Only one I didn't quite get, but the rest are quite amazing.

He's caught some flashy stuff; some good stuff. But none of them is as good as this one by HCB. Wish I could have found a larger copy. There's a significant interaction in this one that not only tells you something about the era in which it was taken, but about attitude differences between the young and the older. That kind of thing is the real heart of street photography.

Yes, it's a world gone, Rab. But the point is: if you don't catch it when it's there it's gone forever and the history, and more importantly the social attitudes that real street catches are gone forever.

Indeed, many of them are quite remarkable, even if not in the same vein as classic street. I've seen his work before and wondered about how he does it. If it was just one or two, you could chalk it up as being lucky to be in the right place at the right time. But with so many of them, you have to wonder how he operates. Find a good setup, and wait for days or weeks for just the right person/dog/whatever to come along in just the right position? It's hard to believe he could find so many of these perfect match ups randomly.
