Jared: Sometimes you have to look closely. The reason for a picture being interesting isn’t readily apparent. Subconscious. Peripheral. Sneaky, even. Street Photography sometimes does more with less. Some jumping off points to get us started.
Bryan: What I like about street photographs like this is that at the point of exposure, it’s really almost a hail mary, but in the best possible way. You see a gesture, color or element that you react to and just fly into the photograph. In these moving masses type of shots it’s really hard to pay attention to every element in the frame, so they always seem to reveal elements you didn’t even notice. In this photograph I like the synergy between the tattoo on the right, the gesture of the hands in the middle, the angel wings on the left and ending on the gesture of the hands of the man in the background, which echoes the girl in the front. It might not be the type of photograph that clubs you over the head with an obvious ‘moment’ but it’s a subtle type of street photograph I appreciate.
