It's interesting to see what time does to one's perceptions
of one's work. Most of the images shown in this exhibit are photos I
once printed then discarded as not of much interest. Rediscovered during
a recent trip to the attic, these images, many from the 70's, now have
gone beyond their original role as casual street photos and now have
taken on some historical documentary significance. Some more recent
work is included simply because I think it works in this collection.
Weird in the Streets is a collection of photographs that
describe what was in front of the camera at that moment. They aspire
to be nothing more. Over time, however, some may view these photographs
in the context of the fashions of the times in which they were taken,
making mental contrasts with the way things are now. What was once throwaway
is now historic document.
Perhaps this is the fate of street photography?
