“Street photography is photography that features the chance encounters and random accidents within public places. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment.”
Framing and timing are key aspects of the street photography. Street photography can focus on emotions displayed, thereby also recording people’s history from my point of view.
“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson, was responsible in the 1950s for the idea of
taking a picture at what he termed the
“The decisive moment”.
“when form and content, vision and composition merged into a transcendent whole”.
“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”
Seeing life around me through a camera lens, not judging only viewing and recording.
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a
moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”
“I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.”
“Look and think before opening the shutter.
The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.”
