I like to roam around Brighton taking pictures of people doing whatever it is they do when they don’t have a camera pointed at them. Ordinary people doing ordinary things. Real people.
I’ve been asked if what I do is legal. It is; if you’re in a public place, you’re in the public domain. You’re probably photographed a hundred times a day by police and council run security cameras, they’re governed by the same regulations (except that if the police ask to see my pictures, or want me to delete them, they have no chance without a warrant). There’s a guide to photographers’ rights here – http://www.sirimo.co.uk/ukpr.php
Street photography is an art form with a long history. It’s social documentary. It’s about capturing looks, styles, a flavour of the people and place; it’s about freezing magic moments in time.
My personal ‘rules':
- Never use the camera to intimidate people.
- Never use the camera to ridicule people or make them look stupid.
- Be respectful.
