Introduction to GUP#25 - The Street Issue




Observing people can be an interesting pastime, but for some it is more than just a hobby. Street photographers are among those people that enjoy staring in public as much as biologists enjoy watching animals in the wild. But other than in nature, the observer of the urban jungle just happens to step into his own natural habitat. The fact that he is at odds with his own environment makes the photographer in the street even weirder than the strangers he depicts. In this GUP we offer a Broadway of these lunies, from apprentices to master, covering all possible styles and techniques. We suggest you just accept their presence and salute yourself in their public mirror. For what they have to offer are worthwhile micro wonders of splendid isolation.
