My focus in photography, and in general interests, shifts and wanders.. A few years ago, around 2012 I became more interested in photography's 'greats' and found myself more frequently visiting photo exhibitions and buying photobooks.
Photographers such as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Robert Frank, John Margolies, Arnold Newman, Anton Corbijn, Steve McCurry, Werner Bischof, Annie Leibovitz, Marc Riboud, etc., took my interest. Photobooks were bought and in subsequent years I started actively collecting 'art' photobooks.
I found myself less interested in portraits and landscapes and gradually my interest was steered to photojournalism and streetphotography. Or maybe the term 'humanist photographer' is best applied here.
In the last two years streetphotography began to take up a large portion of my travel photography. In 2016 I bought a Fujifilm X100T camera for dedicated 'streetphotography'.
Or perhaps the title of 'Humanist Photography' (wikipedia) is more appropriate.
The images were shared on my travel pages, Blog and Flickr & Facebook accounts. In Sep.2016 I started this page, a gallery of such images I am most pleased with myself.
