The New Street Photographer's Manifesto

The New Street Photographer's Manifesto

    February 7, 2013/by techgnotic (https://www.deviantart.com/techgnotic) Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living

The New Street Photographer's Manifesto

The New Street Photographer's Manifesto

In my last post I asked if anyone knew of some great female photographers.  I asked because I was working on a street photography book which would feature inspiring photographers from around the globe.  A year later and this book is finally out! The New Street Photographer's Manifesto - http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-New-Street-Photographers-Manifesto/dp/1908150467/ It's a handy guide that goes through everything you need to know about street photography, and it features a showcase with some highly talented up and coming inspiring photographers – many of whom I've had the pleasure of knowing thanks to this place right here - deviantArt.

Female Street Photographers?

Female Street Photographers?

Can anyone name any good/reputable female street photographers? If so please link me! ----------- EDIT - I have around 4 names now.. seriously, people.  Where are all the female street photographers hiding? Do they exist or not?  I had never thought about it before but this seems to be a genre that is clearly and completely male-dominated.

Elliott Erwitt

Tonight I'm going to a Q&A with Elliott Erwitt.  Can anyone think of any interesting questions to ask him? : ) I'm tempted to ask if he can take a photo of me.. >_< Update: Elliott Erwitt is officially amazing, hilarious and inspiring. Want to be successful (money-wise) at photography? His advice - take photos of celebrities. Update 2: You can read more about this in my photoblog - http://www.tanya-n.com/?p=680
