Street Life- Black and White
To describe my Street Life work I use the term Candid Public Photography.
Nick Turpin, the founder of the international street photographers group in-public says ‘It seems to me that Street Photography as a phrase now lets us down to some extent, it fails to identify the key aspects of our practice, namely that the work is shot without intervention, it is made in a public place (not necessarily the street) and it is a Photo Graph, drawn with light and not with a computer after the fact’.
He also suggests using the hashtag #CANPUBPHOTO on social media feeds ‘so others can be assured of your working practice’.
This series of fleeting moments is documentary in nature featuring chance encounters and random incidents within public places.
