Me & Cathy went to Dean Clough in Halifax this afternoon. Several exhibitions are on.http://www.deanclough.com/arts/whats_on.asp
I was especially taken by The Human Forest !
Street Photos by Adam Summerscales.Shot in Sheffield.
As well as being technically great.and having arresting compositions, I loved how the people in the photos are (mostly ) unaware & uninterested .
They were getting on with their lives........reminding me of what street photography was like before digital and CCTV arrived.
.These days we sense & expect surveillance.We strike a pose whenever a camera pops up.Ironically , the more we are photographed, the less we show of ourselves.
Somehow .Adam's photos catch people unaware and natural. Maybe its the angle he shoots? Maybe people see only his mobility scooter ?
you can visit Adam's website [here]
That’s so true about striking a pose. It’s very difficult to get the natural ‘unawares’ candid shot these days.
we all want our "15 Minutes of Fame".Damn You, Andy Warhol!
