Those that have been following my blog for a number of years would have seen my passion for street photography grow. I find this style of photography very rewarding, particularly when something seen every day is captured in a way that encourages the viewer to appreciate a time and place or discover beauty in ordinary things. However, more than having a passion for this style of art, I think it's both important and necessary. The street photography style pioneered by French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson captures daily life and documents history. An example of why this kind of photography is important can be found in Vivian Mayer's photographic works. Her images have recorded some of the most interesting marvels and peculiarities of Urban America in the second half of the twentieth century. Countless photographers across the globe, both professional and amateur alike, capture images of life as it happens. Last night I walked through the streets of Osaka around Ebisu Bridge the Dotonbori Prefecture with the Fujifilm X-T1 and XF35f2 to see what I could capture. What better place to do some street photography than in an area which influenced Ridley Scott's film Bladerunner?
