Gatufotografering för rättrogna

17 april, 2010

”My point is … I fell in love with street photography the moment I started analogue photography. I never took portraits. I never did journalism. I never dared to do street photography the classic way. Why? Because it’s not possible with a digital… the feeling is missing. You can see the photo right after taking it, which destroys the whole flair. You don’t have real black and white film and you will never be able to see the beauty of a fiberprint. You don’t have to wait until it’s developed, which is another pity. You lose all the joy of the darkroom. Digital cameras are too big, too loud, … they’re simply too flashy. Small digital ones don’t offer any useable quality when it comes to print; digital street photography simply doesn’t look like a street shot. Street is about life and digital is lifeless.” Forward by Severin Koller – Austria (edited by Chris Weeks)

Hos Deviant Art har Chris Weeks publicerat en 160–sidig pdf som ovanstående citat är hämtat från. ”Street Photograhy for the purist” (10,5 Mb). Rekommenderas för sina texter och fina fotografier från gatan.
