Some of my Street Photography

I have been using Tumblr for some time now as a way of posting a mobile photography project, that seems to keep morphing via the use of my Canon G range of cameras.

The initial project was to utilise a workflow of shoot , process and publish, purely using mobile phones or devices. Mainly influenced by a Format PhotoForum talk by Australian Olly Lang ( Oggsie ). This now involves the use of settting a Canon G15 to a fixed focal range and shooting “from the hip” . Similar to Walker Evans Subway Photographs he made in the period 1938 to 1941. By setting a focus distance and keeping the camera in his coat he managed to make several stunning candid portraits.

The following where made in a similar way by me with only minimal corrections to straighten the shots and curves  Рwhat you see is as is from the camera to the screen.
