. . . Street Photography

This is where I started out, I caught the bug for street photography a few years ago, and although I still do enjoy it, it does at times feel a little intrusive, and here in Germany it’s also becoming very difficult, because of the legal requirement to have the written permission of everyone in an image before the shutter has even been pressed.

This is almost certainly the reason why much of German Street photography has degenerated into just showing old people taken from behind as they struggle home with their shopping on a Saturday afternoon, or under exposed images, whereby almost everything is cast into artificial shadow.

Difficult.
