Streets Ahead Interview – Cindy Buske – Mobile Street Photography

Share

This week, the Women’s Street Photography Collective (Streets Ahead) is pleased and honoured to feature Cindy Buske in our interview segment. 

“As a mobile photographer, I love capturing the world around me – literally anything that draws my attention can become a subject. I also have a more figurative side that cherishes the work of creating unique portraiture. My images often enter a dreamy, ethereal world, yet maintain an accessible simplicity.”

Cindy is is a Seattle-based nurse who is passionate about photography. For her, photography is an important creative outlet and counterbalance to the structured world of medicine. Her images have been featured in Snap and Mobiography Magazines, as well as on Hipstography, and in various group exhibitions. I highly recommend a visit to her galleries.
