Title: In a McHurry.
I was asked “Don’t you get worried the people you photograph on the streets will get upset?”
My answer to this is no, in fact that is never a thought in my mind as I’m wandering the streets. The whole moment just moves too fast and that is the last thing I have time to think about. What I’m focused on is moments or scenarios that I see around me. I’m looking at not only faces, but anticipating a moment that has not even happened yet. My mind is focused on body language and surroundings. That is what I think about. That moment when the photo actually happens only takes about 2 seconds and believe me 99% of the people have no idea it even happened. That is the street photographer skill… that is what I’ve been trained to do.
Running the risk of sounding harsh… my subjects are in public spaces, what I do is not illegal and is all part of what can happen when you go into the world outside.
