Andrew Stark on street photography

leave a comment »

Andrew Stark is a Sydney based street photographer. He was kind enough to send me a copy of “Emerging into Life” his, as yet, unpublished study into the psyche of street photographers. It’s a fascinating, insightful and pretty funny read. I certainly hope he gets it published somewhere along the line.

Andrew’s definition of a street photographer:

 “…street photographers emerge almost exclusively from the suburbs. Like a small, mangy pack of bewildered lemmings they shuffle out onto the streets to chase the world, cruelly programmed by their own inner make up, driven in an unrelenting fashion toward a ghastly drop into the art void.”
