I am not a huge fan of street photography; I don’t have any issue with the genre particularly; I am not just comfortable in clicking unknown people’s faces without their consent as well as I do not want to be in someone’s photographs when I am happily walking on a busy street minding my own business.
But I do understand that some photographers love it- it’s a beautiful visual art; and clicking a person when he/she is not posing for the camera is one of the best ways to capture human condition and emotions.
For me though street photography is all about capturing the mood of a street; the change of its life with the change of daylight: the liveliness when it’s crowded and loneliness when the world is silent. Since I avoid capturing people, it becomes wearisome at times. But I know no other way to do it right.
