Title: Not "street art." Street Photography.
Post by: RSL on June 04, 2018, 09:35:22 AM
Okay. Time for me to switch back to Street Showcase for this kind of thing.

Here's a question: As far as I'm concerned, this picture is real street. But I posted the Eureka Springs troubadour as "Street?" with a question mark. What do you think is the difference between these two pictures, each of which focuses on a single person, neither one interacting with another person or with the environment? Why would I make a positive statement that this picture is street photography, and question whether the other picture is street, or maybe informal portraiture?

Since this one could have been taken with a view camera, it is not a real street ;)

Oh, by the way, this wold be typically classified as "environmental portrait."

Well there is one thing we can say about 'landscape peoples': they have sense of humor.

Regardless of classification, it's a neat picture!
