A very interesting read from a website I frequent quite often. I am asked on a fairly regular basis why I enjoy street photography. Add to that how talking to potential subjects and asking to snap their photo takes away from the “purity” of it. I never really have a solid answer for them in the moment but this piece helped to clarify it for me as much as it could for others.
“Sometimes I think that those who feel that posed street portraiture is not street photography might actually be uncomfortable approaching people for conversation and a few snaps.”
