some street photography

Post by mark dyson »

I have been experimenting with some high speed grainy film, Ilford delta 3200 rated at 16.00 iso. These shots are from Manchester.

I really, really like the grittiness and texture of these, especially the treatment on number three.

Hi Mark,

Whilst I like these images I don't think they can be classed as 'street photography' - a more accurate description would be 'urban landscape photography', IMHO. Street photography usually denotes images of people going about their business on the street - a good example of such would be the work of Martin Parr, Garry Winogrand, Robert Doisneau, Robert Frank, and, of course, the master, Henri Cartier-Bresson.

To me, the subject matter of your images are more akin to the work of such photographers as Bill Brandt, Don McCullin and (in his mid-70's work) Lewis Baltz. With that in mind you have a good eye for the unusual and the images are likewise good.

Always ask yourself this question: “am I proud of this shot?” if the answer is “yes” then it doesn’t matter what anyone else says.
