La rubrique "Street Photography" est en cours de réalisation...

Vous pourrez néanmoins trouver ci-dessus quelques clichés, qui je l'espère, vous donneront envie de revenir quand la rubrique sera officiellement ouverte.

...But what is Street Photography ?


“If a documentary photograph is to have any life in it, it’s very important that it exhibit certain characteristics. The photograph should, first of all, be about people. Nothing is more fascinating than the human face and the human condition.” - Bill Owens


“If your photos aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough.”
 - Robert Capa


“Photographers mistake the emotion they feel while taking the photo as a judgment that the photograph is good” - 
Garry Winogrand


“Since I’m inarticulate, I express myself with images.”
 - Helen Levitt


“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
 - Elliott Erwitt


“It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.” - 
Alfred Eisenstaedt


“I suspect it is for one’s self-interest that one looks at one’s surroundings and one’s self. This search is personally born and is indeed my reason and motive for making photographs.” - 
Lee Friedlander


“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.”
 - Bruce Gilden


“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”
 - Henri Cartier-Bresson


“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph.”
 - Andre Kertesz


“Be yourself. I much prefer seeing something, even it is clumsy, that doesn’t look like somebody else’s work.”
 - William Klein


“Photographs sometimes are too subtle and maybe a little too clever, when they need explaining. If a photograph needs explaining then it arguably doesn’t work.” - David Gibson


“The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.”
 - Robert Doisneau


“For a street photograph to be successful I think that something in the scene has to speak meaningful to the photographer, even if what that something is isn't immediately apparent. Effective street photography is about telling a story in a single frame, not simply recording what was there at a particular time and in a specific place.” - 
Michael Reichmann


“I’m known for taking pictures very close, and the older I get, the closer I get.”
 - Bruce Gilden

“A photographer who made a picture from a splendid moment, an accidental pose of someone or a beautiful scenery, is the finder of a treaser.” - Robert Doisneau


“Remember, not everything is a picture. A good eye can edit before the shutter opens.” - 
Craig Coverdale


“Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic and don’t forget to smile.” - Matt Stuart


“Street photography is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are gonna get.
” - Thomas Leuthard


“Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed.” - Garry Winogrand


“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” - 
Ernst Haas


“Writing about street photography is like dancing about architecture.” - Martin Mull
