It's popular among certain tribal cultures in the world's big cities. You find your target and badger and pursue until you can make a snap that portrays the poor sod as stupid, hopeless, humiliated, or dangerous. What it's really all about is the ape practice of enforcing dominance over somebody you feel superior to.

What a bizarre interpretation.  Lots of ignorance and closed mindness in this thread

I think so too.

Everything is out there, so you can take a piture of it.

If you wan't to portrait the world as it is right now, street may be the kind of photography in the western world.

And as for exploitation and such, misery teaches us things through history.

Everybody has seen WW 1 and 2 documantaries and photo's. Everybody has seen Vietnam video and photo's (World Press...you know which photo I refer too).

Portraiting images like this makes people aware of what is out there for real.

It may even change history in the make.
