Kunsten at gå om et hjørne


CYF | 15/12/08

I låge nr. 15 gemmer sig In-Public, et fælles website for en gruppe gadefotografer, som de selv kalder sig. Heriblandt Adrian Fisk:

Og Nils Jorgensen (som også har en fascinerende blog):

Samt Matt Stuart, fra hvis personlige website disse to “pshots” er stjålet:

Fotograferne bruger også siden til at hylde nogle af deres helte, Richard Kalvar, Joel Myerowitz og Bryn Campbell.

Om Gadefotografen lyder det i In-Public-manifestet at “he does not leave the house in the morning with an agenda and he doesn’t visualise his photographs in advance of taking them. Street Photography is about seeing and reacting, almost by-passing thought altogether.”

Sitet rummer dog også en enkelt hun-fotograf, nemlig amerikanske Melanie Einzig, der blandt andet gør brug af det simple trick at gå om et hjørne.

Nick Turpin, forfatteren bag manifestteksten, tilføjer: “A series of street photographs may show a ‘crazy’ world, perhaps ‘dreamlike’. This is, for me, the most fascinating aspect of Street Photography, the fact that these ‘crazy’, ‘unreal’ images were all made in the most ‘everyday’ and ‘real’ location, the street.”
