As you enter the Sacre Coeur from place St Pierre, you pass Ghanaians selling West African bracelets, Romany gypsies begging, French musicians strumming…various communities all trying to get hold of your Euros. But when you reach the top of Paris’ ‘sacred heart’ you are treated to the incredible skill of Guinean footballer Iya Traore, doing kick ups whilst climbing a lamp! No need to guess where my Euros went!

My time spent travelling through Europe was often in the caverns of the Metro system, where I searched for an interplay between cultures. I was interested in the mixed-race girl listening to her iPod whilst the musician played the dramatic theme from the movie ‘The GodFather’ on his accordion. But as a street photographer you can sometimes get caught out, and the angry man pointing at me thought I was taking a photograph of him. I suppose in the end, I was! © J A Pitts
