FROM WIKIPEDIA: Street photography defined
Street photography is conducted for art or enquiry
Features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places
Can focus on people and their behavior in public, thereby also recording people's history.
Can be seen as an extension of the flâneur, an observer of the streets
May or may not necessitate presence of a street or even urban environment
Framing and timing can be key aspects with aim of capturing decisive or poignant moments
Doesn't exclusively feature people within the frame, but traces left by humanity that say something about life
Images might be absent of people, and instead show an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic
FINDING YOUR VOICE AND BECOMING YOU!
Well-known photographer Roger Ballen says:
"I have been taking photographs for over fifty years and during this time I developed a style that is referred to as Ballenesque. My aesthetic evolved, layer by layer, predominantly inspired by the images I created. It takes time, hard work, commitment, imagination to find the path, the road that takes you to a place that you never expected to be, where ones work genuinely stands out from anything else."
