Where is the art in street photography?

Let me take the opportunity to comment on a major issue of street photography. By tradition, street photography (ala Eugene Atget) is objective and documentary.

Yet, the photographer must infuse his visions and intentions into his pictures. From this, comes the drama, humanity and wit of the pictures we love.

A crucial part of this synthesis lies in the details you choose to include in your masterpiece. It will reflect on your situational awareness and values.

This is what I look for. That there is a mind behind the camera.
