Some Street Smarts
Here is a video from a series called MagRack we found tripping around YouTube.
Some of the comments were right on the money. Great tips, but the genius of Joel Meyerowitz’s work is not evident in the video.
From his color imagery of the life at the shore to his huge collection of photographs made around the World Trade Center post 9/11 called “Aftermath”, you can see he is a passionate artist.
Go to his site and take a closer look at his work.
And here is another street photography video. Just the photos, ma’am, just the photos. And make sure you watch this one full screen. Some excellent images.
The legacy of street photography is deep and wide. The chosen moments of life around you are a constant canvas of subject matter.
Who are your favorites? Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Gary Winogrand, Diane Arbus, Andre Kertesz, Helen Levitt, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Weegee, or……?
Let’s hear from you on this one.
