What is wrong shooting homeless, sick ederly, or people with life struggling problems. It is some logic behind modern image culture mixed with manipulations and misinformation just anywhere, above, on, and under the earth. Money matter. And what is powerty? Powerty is other side of beeing satisied with life... (I think we talk about Western world and its streets).
The problem can arise not from photographer but from one that use the photographs, for which purpose he use it and how.
For all of that reasons I do not like to picture kids on street just because I do not want to melt their naïve and honesty with other “people”. I wish they never became part of todays world, but to build the world as they are while kids. Then I will photograph and smiling kids on streets.
