Bill Cunningham, the "On the Street" fashion photographer for the NY Times for many years, His joy in his work is infectious. I highly recommend the recent documentary about his life & work. Just a a lovely person.
Everyone can use it, but not everyone makes art. I think what’s happened digitally, is that there’s been this huge explosion of access to imagery because you can print them at home. Or you can put them up on flickr and share pictures this way. So it both expands the market, and not necessarily makes it that much more interesting or better or artful, but it brings more and more people into it, so there’s a greater possibility of someone discovering their voice.”
"I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the unexpected, the unknown, or the secret heart of the known awaits just around the corner." Alex Webb joined Magnum Photos in 1976 and became a full Member in 1979.
