Matt Stuart has a sense of Humour

Street photography, Dublin, Ireland

A Street Photograph from Dublin.

As street photography is one of the fastest growing forms of popular photography, you only have to look at the amount of photography forums and photography blogs on the internet,  here is a short video by one of the best modern street photographers, Matt Stuart.  I love his work, I cannot get enough of the humour and his love of the bizarre.  Coincidentally I saw in the Gaurdian this morning that he is giving a masterclass in London in June, the details are here.  I am Not sure if that is connected with the London street photography festival though it could be.  Tempting, very tempting!!!!

    While I do think they are fabulous, I’m wondering why the increase in popularity in street photography – is it about finding beauty in the ordinary?

    • Well I don’t exactly know but the Internet has played a huge role in its popularity. You only have to look at sites like Flickr to see the amount of street photography groups. For example last year and the previous year a group was set up to promote a book called street photography now, Matt Staurt is one of the photographers featured, and thousands of people participated and contributed images to the pool. It’s about finding beauty in the ordinary, it’s about humour, looking for the ridiculous, it has energy, sex, violence, love etc, I guess it’s holding up a mirror to society and that’s what is intriguing about it. You can spend all day looking and come home with nothing but sore feet but the next day you’ll do it all again.

        ah, thanks for explaining it. I can understand wanting to capture the beauty in the ordinary but thanks for explaining the surge in popularity.
