    • Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects within public places.
    • Such as streets, parks, beaches, shops, political conventions and other settings.
    • Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography, in that it shows a vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society.
    • Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive moment.
  • 3. “ There are things hidden for all the world until photographed.” - Craig Coverdale

    • “ I don't start out with any specific interests, I just react to what I see. I don't know that I set out to take pictures of dogs; I have a lot of pictures of people and quite a few of cats. But dogs seem to be more sympathetic.” – Elliot Erwit
