What is Street Photography?
In brief, we refer to Street Photography as an observation by means of a camera of daily public life, where the muse of the observer is, most often, the common man and his environment. It is documentary-like in method where the scene and subjects are photographed candid and un-staged. Street Photography, at it’s best, are like Haikus – concise and poetic descriptions of everyday occurrences. Want more information and references?
