…street photography is under valued and under threat. The genre is continually misunderstood with sweeping generalisations and judgements made about both its practitioners and the purpose of the work they produce. It is quite common for critics of this area of the medium to label it as an invasion of privacy, distasteful and I’ve encounterd those that state that particular approaches adopted to capture the images are ‘snide’.

The purpose of this blog is to explain why I strongly feel that it should be promoted, valued, practiced and taught, comments and any resulting discussions are very welcome.
