I love street photography… it is so real. The biggest draw to photography for me is the capturing of an emotion in a moment, and so much of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photos did just that. The article written by PhotoFocus’s Scott Bourne was an inspiration for me to run to my local library and scoop up some of the collections by this artist (who emphatically stated that art was not his intent).
Another (present day) street photographer that made me fall hard and fast is Brandon Stanton. He published his collection, “Humans of New York”, last year which has been on top of my coffee table ever since. He started with a blog and the idea just caught on.
