As a once great phorographer said...just cause it was taken on the street, doesn't make it street photography.
His work is as close to that often mentioned word "candid" photography as you can get, and in my opinion since the thesorus describes an alternative word for candid is "straight forward"...it probably describes the ease with which pictures like that are to take.
That in no way means I am judging your enjoyment of his work, art is in the eye of the beholder, but close up street imagery....now that is something to behold.
It seems that many people are against Strueli's method here. I was out shooting today and my telephoto lens got lots of starry eyed attention, so I quickly store it back. I ended up shooting landscape only.
Later that day while on the train back home, I tried using shutter cable release and resting the camera on my lap
It was disastorous as my DSLR shutter was heard by people near me. No one got up to confront me, but it sure was embarassing. I was no Walker Evans alright
Makes me wonder if I should invest on a Leica or a TLR instead:rolleyes:
