This post started as “Ten Top Street Photography Blogs.” However, let’s be honest, there are already 100’s of blog post with similar articles, and they all mention identical websites. Instead, here is my list of websites than make you go Hmmmm.
“It may look like I’m just pointing the camera at what’s in front of me. But I’m trying to photograph what people see, but don’t notice – something that’s mysterious and unknown in everyday life.” Daido Moriyama
So far my ‘top ten list’ has looked very white, perhaps reflecting history itself, often represented from this viewpoint. I know of few iconic photographers who are people of colour, although there are some incredibly talented Black and Asian contemporary artists out there. If I am wrong, please let me know of some artists I can study. On this note, I am writing about Moriyama, a Tokyo-based Japanese artist.
