Street Photography
by Tim Brookes

Street photography is a term that means different things to different people. It can describe pretty much any photography in a public space including, for example, photography of urban landscapes, of architecture or of people. Generally, though, it's unstaged and unplanned.

I like street photography that centres on people and that portrays something of the human condition. When I’m taking street photographs, I’m hoping to capture some element of the wonder of everyday life, and of what makes people people. I usually try to photograph a scene without disturbing it, but I might occasionally ask somebody if I can take their portrait.

Other photographers who’ve said things that have fed into my take on street photography include:

I hope you like at least some of what you see here.
