Impossible interactions are challenging for candid photography. Street Photography is nourished largely -but not only- by temporary and spatially unique scenes, due to the relationship established only in the photographers mind -and often only in his eyes- while he’s able to combine it in a picture .
Of course, the Street Photography is much more … in fact the big names in the discipline are going beyond its theoretical limits, they use irony, surrealism, unusual action carried out by anonymous people, their attitudes towards the camera, the fine details of the city … All this, and more, captured in just a few seconds -it isn’t often true that a scene lasts only a small fraction of a second- all of it in the public sphere, where the photographer is able to find a double meaning to the scene so that the viewer recognizes it.
And while the main public place is the street, museums offer an inexhaustible source of scenes to the trained eye: look, recognize, framing, intentional composing, finding the picture … and enjoying the process.
This series is just a collection of street scenes that took place in several museums around the world. I don’t belive one has to be Elliott Erwitt to capture interesting pictures in a museum; all one needs is a little technical skills, pay attention and have some intention. Together with Quesabesde.com I’m offering two Photowalks on 14 and 21 November: they are the ideal course to catch up with the camera or to take advantage of technical and visual aspects that will help you to get more interesting pictures.
