I think ‘Art’, or whatever label we give it should be something pure in and of itself. Every time I see another article quoting the famous shooters from last century and then trying to relive it makes me want to throw up, jokingly…
But I would never look at their work.
To me it should be absolutely creatively inspired, not from some book you read or idea that has been planted in our minds by someone else’s notion of what the general consensus is on ‘Street Photography’.
Personally, if I follow that, ie, never follow, I love my photos and look at them all the time. That’s the style of shooter I look for and admire. wink emoticon Are we creative, or repeaters?
