Street photography, sometimes called documentary photography, are candid photos of people in (mainly) public places. Photographers like Bruce Gilden, Joel Meyerowitz, Garry Winogrand, and James Maher all embody the essence of street, waiting for what Henri Cartier-Bresson “the decisive moment.” These unpredictable images can be out-of-focus or unbalanced, color or black-and-white. And street photography doesn’t have to be done on the street; it’s a way of recording human activity – something that can be done in New York or in your back yard. The goal is to document the narrative as you see it.
