Chicagoans in winter - Street Photography photos

Photography is presented to the public in many different art forms. Street Photography is one form that photographers use to express their art. Street photography has been a very popular form of photography for a long time. Whether reflected in photographic journalism, art, portrait photography or just a quick “selfie,” all photography captures a moment in time that tells a visual story, that needs to be told.

If you Google or ask what Is Photography? The Answer you get from is:

Photography is the science, art and practice of making durable images through recording light or any other electromagnetic radiation by means of an image sensor or even means of light sensitive material. Normally, a lens is used to focus on the reflected light. defines Street Photography as:

Street photography is an art photography that features the human condition within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. The subject of the photograph might be absent of people and can be object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic. The origin of the term 'Street' refers to a time rather than a place, a time when women achieved greater freedom, when workers were rewarded with leisure time and when society left the privacy of their sitting rooms, people engaged with each other and their surroundings more publicly and therein the opportunity for the photographer

For me photography is a expressive outlet, It can be rewarding in many ways. I find Photojournalism interesting, I do not find it fulfilling, nor do I embrace it as much as I do Street Photography. Many Street Photographers view their street work as Art, I do as well.


One of my favorite shots is of Micheal in front of Miller's Pub on Wabash, another is the photo below of three women standing on the corner waiting for the light to change.
