Todays Episode is about the rules and guidelines of street photography. Street photography is an exploding subgenus of photography with a deep-rooted history, a plethora of “masters” and with it the associated traditions. For many, the guidelines that make up street photography are viewed more as must follow the rules. New, and emerging talents are already breaking those moulds and setting their standards alongside the ever-expanding access to advancing technology. The traditionalist values are under challenge while only existing for such a short time (relatively speaking), but the unique issue presented is the expansion of technology.
Should we address the problems presented by the rules and guideline of street photography, or should we stick to its core and prevent the ingress of change dismantling its relatively young foundations?
