Street photography. What is it?
When I think of street photography, I think of images by Andre Kertesz, Elliott Erwitt, Lisette Model and of course the decisive moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson. They went about capturing the world on film as it evolved.
Today, it’s complicated. Should we ask our subjects for permission? Do we capture images of people going about their daily lives without interruption, or do we ask them to stop for a moment and pose?
In this episode I’ve asked award winning photographers Tony Fouhse and Justin Wonnacott to join me in a discussion on street photography. As with any good discussion, we did get a little off topic, but it was still relevant and important to not just street photography, but important issues facing photographers today.
This episode is not trying to answer what is right and what is wrong, but start a discussion on the topic of street photography.
I invite you to enjoy the podcast and join the discussion by posting your comments.
