Lowepro Mission 7: Street Photography

N. Vietnam – An entirely contagious grin from elderly Black Thai woman in public market.

Street photography (to me) relates to technique and style more than it does a particular location – urban or otherwise.  At its best, “street” is that intersection where a candid snapshot becomes an unspoken collaboration between subject and photographer.  In this case, a White Tai elder was peddling greens at a market in rural Son La, N.Vietnam.  We spied each other a ways off and as she approached I raised my lens to be met by one of the most marvellous smile I’ve seen in ages.  The camera clicked, we nodded at each other and happily went our ways.
