Steet Photography is a Problem

Most of these images were taken from 2018 to 2022, and most before the pandemic changed everything.

Leave aside the ranting gestures of the mad, the quick jerk into the street to leer at a stranger on the other side. The telling words “shoot” and “flash” that should be precautionary but are all too evidently read as a dare in the age of personal branding.

Whatever may be moral or ethical, the issue remains that street photography is so often by the privileged and of the exploited.
