Getting connected with Mr Katupat

Mr Katupat

I met Mr Katupat on my way to a generator on another island which  we could use to power a private telecom antenna. Unfortunately, the entire village realised that this foreigner trumped the availability of a network connection before I got a change to get a phone connection, so I was not able to use the mobile phone antenna as only five connections were possible at a time. But to experience this way of life has proved to be more valuable than my phone call.

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.
