Sebastião Salgado surveys the installation of his exhibition Genesis, which opens this Friday. Don’t miss it! (at ICP - International Center of Photography)
In street photography you walk a lot, and a lot of the time it is taught as a basic ‘rule’ that you have to be quick with the shutter to capture the moment, ‘freeze it in time’. Bull shit. Well to an extent I believe it is. I agree there are a lot of photographers that do it well, Paul Russell and David Solomons jump to mind quickly, there work is witty and humorous, and very quick. But I don’t believe it is the be all end all of street photography that some sites believe.
