142/366 Street Photography Now

I’ve finished the book now. It didn’t take that long, considering how slowly I read a book. The consisted of example of renowned street photographers from around the world. I think that it is reasonable to say that there were as many different reasons for the subjects of the book as there were subjects.

It naturally raises the questions of why am I interested in the genre? Given that with people I didn’t know I tend to be a bit shy, I’m surprised that I find this topic sufficiently interesting that I want to have a go at it. The off-putting part of it is the potential for confrontation. It was interesting to read that whilst street photography in Japan isn’t illegal if a picture of a person is published and they feel their privacy is violated, they can sue, and they will win. The photographer who featured in the book only took pictures that didn’t show their faces.

My thought is that for me, the purpose of street photography is to document today’s life. For that to happen I need to have the opportunity to photograph people, especially doing things in the normal way of life. not much chance of that at the moment. But, there will be future opportunities.

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.
