I just had this discussion with my wife yesterday. Apart from the concentrating on the grunge and homeless she made a good point.

Not many periods in history are well recorded. What did the average person do in their daily life, what was it like?

So street photography is capturing the essence of daily life for many people and at some point in the future it would give a clear idea as to what life was like during this period of history.

That made sense to me.


Now I'm getting it!!!

These bunch of invasive  unconsidered "Peeping Tom" voyeurs  are historians. Wow!!!.

Any photographer is a voyeur.

By the time Ansel Adams was taking photo's mountains Robert Capa was doing his work in Europe.

A different approach but good craftsmen.

True.  What utter nonsense calling it voyeurism.  I guess some closed minded jealous wanabees hate any documentary images being recorded.

Till a certain extent it's true, but here is a negative casted on the the genre and that isn't true.

The genre expands so the likes and dislikes will.
