First of all thanks for taking the time to check out my site.
I thought I would open this blog by asking the age old question What is Street Photography ?
Unless we understand our medium we have little chance of creating successful images.
Street Photography is a form of art photography it is not created with a vision of historical relevance that is documentary photography however the images may develop historical relevance in the future as any art form reflects the time of its creation.
Street Photography is not meant to address social injustice or try to change the world that is the job of photojournalism although everyday life is our subject in all its various forms.
Street Photography should take place in public places and usually include a reference to life but this can be indirect, most street togs believe "SP" should be candid and that the great street pictures expose the small truths of life. SP is not better or worse than documentary photography or photojournalism it is just different and can be difficult to identify along side each other.
