Phil Cosker discovered Henri Cartier Bresson when he was 17 and started taking photographs soon after – it took him some time to start making them; when he did it was Bresson who was his first influence.

Why ‘Snaps’? The OED variously defines ‘snap’ thus: a quick or sudden closing of the jaws or teeth (shutter) in biting … something worth securing or getting hold of; an odd chance; a good place or job … a scrap fragment or morsel … to utter sharp, tart, or cutting words … to make a quick and eager catch at a thing … to take instantaneous photographs …
