Robert Franck: The AmericansThe Americans, by Robert Frank, was a highly influential book in post-war American photography. It was first published in France in 1958, and the following year in the United States. The photographs were notable for their distanced view of both high and low strata of American society. The book as a whole created a complicated portrait of the period that was viewed as skeptical of contemporary values and evocative of ubiquitous loneliness.Robert Franck: The Americans by *jimbeam166
With the aid of his major artistic influence, the photographer Walker Evans, Frank secured a grant from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation in 1955 to travel across the United States and photograph its society at all strata. He took his family along with him for part of his series of road trips over the next two years, during which time he took 28,000 shots.
Only 83 of those were finally selected by him for publ

"Street is like a woman. She's dancing for everyone to see, but she only dances for the one she's loved by..." This statement has been circling my mind for some time now, but finally it formed to become a complete thought capturing the essence of the genre.
Back to the question. What is 'street' like in England? I am not native to England, therefore no idea. I can tell you however, in London streets smell of coffee, bagels, cigarette smoke, fish a

Street photography has captured my interest for multiple reasons. Good street photos are raw; they give you a feeling of being there. As Bruce Gilden says you can smell the street when looking at a good street photograph.
Taking street photos makes me feel alive. It keeps me on the lookout for the unexpected. Although elaborate planning can be an integral part of street photography, I personally don't have the patience. I'd much rather keep on moving, keeping my eyes wide open for the unexpected.
This picture is a perfect example of that. I was walking around in Portland, ME when this lady came out of a store right in front of me. I notice her "stature" right away but thought that taking a picture from the back was poor taste. Right after this thought, I saw the large ice cream stand and noticed the resemblance in the "swirls". As always, my trusty Fuji X100 was strapped around my neck, manually focused to
Who's this guy?!The truth is, I don't know.. I followed his work for some years now and he manages to keep a very low profile. Pictures in his gallery come and go. They never stay too long. Yet they stay imprinted in my mind.Who's this guy?! by =lightdrafter
I took the liberty and questioned Jure on behalf of :iconthepeopleavenue: and out of my curiosity. I hoped to find out more about the person behind the photos, but when I read the answers to my questions I had goose bumps and decided to leave the answers open ended, perhaps as Jure intended. There were questions popping up in my mind, not sure though to what end. So, dear reader, I would like you to address your questions directly to to him.

Would you introduce yourself to me? Who are you? Where you come from? What do you do? Solomon Islands? Really?
