The author illustrates his points with pictures taken by him. Well, although those photos are nothing special, that should not mean that Mr Sadgrove is not entitled to offer his knowledge about this style of photography. After all, one can master all the theory but be bad or average when it comes to practice. But, the problem is that Mr Sadgrove offers just a mixture of commonplaces and questionable ethics.
The commonplaces consist on what I said above, there is nothing in this book you can't find googling "street photography". The questionable ethics concern the treatment Mr Sadgrove gives to his subjects. I like street photography, I try to shoot some myself and I like reading about it. One of things most street photographers seem to agree with is that you must treat your subjects with respect. Above all if you are, as Mr Sadgrove, into candid street photography. That is, taking portraits of strangers without their knowing. As you can see, we are on thin ice when it comes to the ethics of this practice. It is true that, in most countries, it is possible to take photos of anything that is on the street, including people. But, on the other hand, you must be conscious that you are intruding people's life and using their image without their consent. Therefore, I think that you must try and make your photo respectful.Read more ›
