Steve, these are amazing photographs and it doesn't concrn me in the least if they fit into some arbitrary term or not. Even so, environmental portrait is actually a subset of street photography in most people's minds and so it definitely fits here.

And you are correct in your assessment. I've made similar statements regarding soulless shots here for years (some under the tag HulaMike). Just "being on the street " and shooting doesn't make a shot relevant or good. Without a story or insite into the subject's being they are just fleeting snapshots better relegated to the trash bin.
