I have little to no interest in street photography when the subject has simply been observed. The photographer has snapped a sneaky shot and scuttled away. There is a rude, self serving element to it. I enjoy it when there has been an obvious back and forth. A conversation between the two. Chinatown Pretty is a blog created by Valerie Luu and Andria Lo. It celebrates the street style of seniors living in San Francisco’s Chinatown and is a great example of street photography I enjoy.
This is a photograph of a gentleman called Kuochiang Fung. The blog post gives some information towards their interaction and gives hint to his interesting backstory.
Maybe my feelings towards this style of photography will change but for now I remain stubborn.
