#Street_photography , also sometimes called #candid_photography , is #photography conducted for #art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places. Although there is a difference between #street and candid photography it is usually subtle with most street photography being candid in #nature but not all candid photography being classifiable as street photography. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the #urban environment. Though #people usually feature directly, street photography might be absent of people and can be of an object or environment where the #image projects a decidedly #human character in facsimile or aesthetic.
The street photographer can be seen as an extension of the flaneur, an observer of the streets (who was often a writer or artist). Framing and timing can be key aspects of the craft with the aim of some street photography being to create images at a decisive or poignant moment.
Street photography can #focus on people and their behavior in public, thereby also recording people's history. This motivation entails having also to navigate or negotiate changing expectations and laws of privacy, security and property. In this respect the street photographer is similar to social #documentary photographers or #photojournalists who also work in public places, but with the aim of capturing newsworthy events; any of these photographers' images may #capture people and property visible within or from #public#places . The existence of services like #Google Street View, recording public space at a massive scale, and the burgeoning trend of self-photography ( #selfies ), further complicate ethical issues reflected in attitudes to street photography.
Today we spent time at #blackislandfarms in Syracuse, Utah. (I highly recommend a visit in October.) I watched my daughter excited to choose her pumpkin. Each one she inspected and would say, "nope. This is not the perfect one" She seemed to flutter between all the pumpkins with such joy and not a care in the world. Suddenly she stops and asks me to take her picture. She then proceeded to pose as you see here. Her confidence is beautiful. It was a reminder to me how important it is that we spend ours days being our own awesome self. "You do you" as its so often stated.
