I'd be interested on your definition of street. (I've seen your screed and not surprised it's failed to get published. You're angry, I get that.) I have never claimed that I follow a particular style. You're definition of street would leave it more than several decades behind. And irrelevant.
Hi Jenn, I'm not going to comment on your feelings or emotions about what you think is my "anger," but I do need to point out that definitions of art genres don't change over time. Street photography is a quite specific variety of fine art, "fine art" being defined as art created for esthetic purposes. I know that the "Documentary" web, for which you're currently moderator, thinks street photography falls within it's catch-all title. But it doesn't. Street photography was invented by people like Andre Kertesz and Henri Cartier-Bresson early last century, and it most emphatically wasn't and isn't documentary. Henri was the one who really defined it, and Henri was a Surrealist. A documentary photograph tells a story, and, to be good, tells it unambiguously. A real street photograph includes a story but poses a question and doesn't answer the question. A street photograph submitted alone as documentation for a story would be rejected out-of-hand by any sane editor. Documentary photography is supposed to answer a question, not raise a question.
From what you've said lately about street photography and photography in general I'd suggest you could profit from a study of art history and some serious reading on the history of photography. Seems to me I posted a link to my annotated bibliography on "Documentary." I think it's somewhere on LuLa too. You might want to look it up. If you can't find it I'll be happy to post it again for you.
Oh, and regarding those "screeds," (yes there are two of them on street photography and probably more to come), they'll never be published unless I send them out. In the sixties I used to write non-fiction and poetry and get quite a bit of it published, but I don't need the never-ending hassle involved in sending stuff out. Nowadays I post my screeds on the web and let it go at that. It's more fun that way.
