A Cowards Guide to Street Photography

I love the poignancy of street photography; the way it can portray the world in an ironic, tragic, educational or funny way – often all at the same time! I would love to have the confidence to point my lens directly at someone and shoot, even from a distance – more often than not though I just don’t have the ‘hutzpah’. Photographer Profile ~ FRED HERZOG. Fred Herzog (b.1930, Germany) is a photographer known primarily for his photos of life in Vancouver, Canada.

Photographer Profile ~ FRED HERZOG

He worked professionally as a medical photographer. He was the associate director of the UBC Department of Biomedical Communication, and also taught at Simon Fraser University. He grew up in Stuttgart, but was evacuated from the city during the aerial bombardment of the Second World War. His parents died during the war (of typhoid and cancer), after which he dropped out of school and found work as a seaman on ships. He emigrated to Canada in 1952, living briefly in Toronto and Montreal before moving to Vancouver in 1953. One year with the X100 - blog - laROQUE.

I’d heard from local travel photographer Yves Perrault via twitter that he’d purchased an X100 at a photo store called Lord Photo, a 30 minute drive from where I live. I had also just learned that the Montreal shop where I had reserved the camera - with deposit, thank you - had known all along they wouldn’t be part of the first shipment. Needless to say I was pissed. Not because I had an acute case of G.A.S (well, I did) but mostly due to the fact that I desperately wanted the camera for our upcoming France trip and its availability appeared seriously jeopardized for months to come, due to both heavy demand and the horrible tsunami disaster.

Train of Thought: On the ‘Subway’ Photographs by Bruce Davidson. In the spring of 1980, I began to photograph the New York subway system.

Before beginning this project, I was devoting most of my time to commissioned assignments and to writing and producing a feature film based on Isaac Bashevis Singer’s novel, Enemies, A Love Story.

He talks from a scientific-philosophical viewpoint, and has many fascinating insights. One of them was about knowledge—and that it isn’t necessarily additive—rather something subtractive. Street Photography: Peter Jenkins. There have been a number of well-publicised cases over the past few years where seemingly normal, perfectly law-abiding citizens (yes, photographers are citizens too, you know) have been stopped from doing what everyone had assumed was perfectly legal and publicly acceptable, that is to take photographs in a public place.

London’s Street Photography. There are some terrific photographers in the Museum of London’s current exhibition, London Street Photography.

The photographers range from John Thomson, who was a 19th-century pioneer in this genre when long exposure times and bulky cameras made such photographs minor miracles, to Nick Turpin, who founded the website In-Public in 2000 to give contemporary practitioners a place to congregate and keep the genre going. Turpin’s is classic work that catches the chance juxtapositions and silly associations on which hand-camera street photography has thrived since Henri Cartier-Bresson was declared a boy genius by the Surrealists in the 1930s.
