Street Photography - In Analogue
To the person behind the camera, street photography forces them into the reality of the frame, even as an observer. It’s a challenge at the best of times, but to then confine yourself to capturing the moment on an analog format, requires a huge amount of awareness of just how delicate the shot is. Not only do you have to get your settings right before you release the shutter, you must time it perfectly.
But beyond the craft itself, this kind of photography is ultimately about saying; I see you, I see the complexities, I see what others might not.
In this episode we talk to Wayne Waterson and Dean Scutt (two street photographers) about their experience, their motivations, why they work with analog, and all of the key questions surrounding the importance of street photography in a world of ‘perfect’ images.
