106/365 The Snapshot and Art

The monthly magazine, Black & White Photography turned up on Tuesday. As usual, I put aside The Story of Art to read it, and I’ll do the same when my other favourite magazine, Country Walking arrives sometime in the next few days.

Usually when I read the magazine at least one of the articles sparks an interest, or a desire to write about it. Issue No. 247 is no different. Page 34 features an article entitled On Sydney Street. Sydney Street is one of the Brighton Laines. If you’ve never been, they are well worth a visit (when it’s safe to do so, of course). There’s a barbers on Sydney street run by Michael Hutson. Michael was (is?) a professional photographer.


Michael’s photographs are taken through the barbershop window, frequently with his iphone.

What is it that makes Michael an artist? Is it the fact that he’s taking his pictures through the window of the shop where he works? Is it that someone says “You’re an artist”? Undeniable, some of his pictures ask questions; who are they? why are they there? In some cases, why are they dressed like that (storm troopers)?

They are good pictures, what makes them good? What makes a snapshot art?

A fascinating article, a good magazine, lovely pictures.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
