Street Photography


''If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it's a street photograph” -Bruce Gilden
 
Okay, I don't even know who 'Bruce Gilden' is,  I Just took his quote because it fits.
 
Anyway, I'm not going to delve into the whole study, ethics, and position of Street Phography, it only caught my attention because of the name of a Street Photragher's book.
 
'COLLECTING SOULS'
 
And what made me(who is not that all interested in photos of any kind) take a closer look at this book, was the Book cover itself.
 
A child that you don't even know the expression of its face, because he has he's back to you, little bare shoulders poking out of his vest, venturing into a dark, forgotten, once glamorous (probably) mansion.
 
I didn't 'read' the ebook, I just scrolled through the pictures.
 
If there ever is pictures that; ''Every picture tells a story'' than its a Street Photographer's unposed for pictures.
