Street Photography in China

In the last couple months, Ive been joining groups on Flickr and Facebook with the aim of improving my street photography, through the means of giving and receiving critique on people’s work. After having spent half an hour a day, monitoring and critisizing other work, my conclusion is that I only learned from successful work of other people, and not from critique on my own work. This goes to show that one really has to copy successful images, ideas, concepts or techniques, if one wants to understand the success of an image. Im aware that the word success is a bit ambiguous in this context. However, realizing this, I decided my next project will just be finding copies that are really close to my favourite photographer’s iconic images.

The image above was taken on a very early morning on a holiday within China. Its not a particularly strong composition, but I feel its an outspoken image.In an attempt to strenghten my idea and understanding of what street photography means to me, I decided to gather information on how other practisioners have attempted to define this vague genre. As I feel I need borders around this style, to feel limited by its definition, as this limitation has a creative impact on me while im looking for new images.

Mutual Curiosity with the Village Elder

Shy boy looking away. The coloured flags in the background represent different political parties. Indonesia is proud of its democracy!

Dark Clouds Ahead. The dark spots in the sea are a mixture of coral and hordes of spiky sea urchins

In Indonesia, smoking men are as common as clouds in the sky

Sunset over the pitoresque village. The bridge is leading to the other Gypsy village, just around the corner of the far rocks on the left.

Kids play a ball version of hide-and-seek, the entire island became a playground for all the boys and girls.

The Mosque, with its speakers at the top, could be heard even on neigboring islands. Despite the high share of muslims in this regions, most parties and festivals still involve a jolly dose of alcohol. People seem to practise religion in a pragmatic way, whereas “Indonesiaism” seems to be practised in an ideal way. Social cohesion is still thick in thinly populated areas.

Boy on its way to school, crossing the miles-long bridge. Sidenote: I was too scared myself  to even cross 100 meter on this ancient wabbling wooden construction.
