Street Photography Not on the Street
I went to London and Paris in June of this year (2015)and went to a number of museums. When I am going through a museum I am not looking to take pictures of the art work. That’s pretty much a complete bore to me. What I like is doing street photography in a museum setting. I look for composition and juxtaposition. Some are taken with my 2008 Panasonic Lumix G1, others with my iPhone. Neither is great in low light so the grain is often apparent. I don’t mind that.
- Some are finely arranged, with my spending quite a long time waiting or maneuvering to get just the right shot.
- Some are hip-high blind shots I take as I am moving.
- Some are are about seeing an art piece without the distraction of the crowd.
- Some are all about the crowd and the feeling of the human space.
- Some are funny.
- Some are beautiful.
It’s one of my favorite things in the world to walk through a museum finding these images. I hope you like them.
