Street photographer ~ Street Photpgraphy.
Is a genre of photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment.'Street' simply refers to a place where human activity can be seen, a place to observe and capture social interaction.
The subject can even be absent of any people and can be that of object or environment where an object projects a human character or an environment is decidedly human.
Paris is widely accepted as the birthplace of street photography. The cosmopolitan city helped to define street photography as a genre and the photography helped to form the city through the years.
Documentary Photography.
Is defined by its premeditated message and intention of documenting particular events in history. The documentary approach includes aspects of journalism, art, education, sociology and history.
In documentary's social investigation, often the images are intended to pave way to social change. Documentary's underlying motives complicate its ability to give a clear, impartial vision of the world.
Street photography is disinterested in its nature, allowing it to deliver a true depiction of the world. Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.
