Assignment: document the streetscape of Nottingham, England
Fulbright Summer Institute Participant
Streetscape photography captures flickering moments of human life across the backdrop of the city. The camera allows instants to become timeless. Sudden facial expressions, fleeting movements, and ironic coincidences are all frozen in time.
In these fleeting and unconscious compositions, human nature reveals itself.
Streetscape photography is especially challenging as it often entails shooting pictures from the hip, and there are no opportunities for retakes. Composition, colors, and timing are everything. As with all situational photography, it depends on positioning oneself in the right time at the right place and knowing how to take advantage of it.
