Street photography: week four

“Document some evidence of human ingenuity that would otherwise go unnoticed. Do it without including any humans in the picture” Michael Wolf

This is a simple photograph but one that stopped me in the street: contrasting and strong colours with a geometry.

Street photography: week three

“Take a bus. Do weekly shopping. Pop into a public loo” Nils Jorgensen

I like this image quite a lot. There are striking colours on a grey background and regular shapes and lines of the boxes and fish stall that are broken by the curves of the people. Most of all, it is a brief moment during a weekly shopping excursion.

Street photography: week two

Welcome to the weekly image post by Damian Lidgard, Lidgard Photography. Each week I will be posting a new image for you to view. Hopefully this will inspire you to stop and look a little as you go about your daily routines.

To start the weekly posting of images I thought I would follow the Street Photography Now project, “…a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, London, and Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren”. Each month, for the past few months leading contemporary street photographers have been posting a monthly assignment on street photography with the aim of creating inspiration to look at the world in a different way.

The second assignment was entitled:

” Turn your attention to the four-legged population” Ying Tang

Street photography: week one

This is the start of a weekly image posting. To start I thought I would follow the Street Photography Now project, “…a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, London, and Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren”. Each month, for the past few months leading contemporary street photographers have been posting an assignment on street photography with the aim of creating inspiration to look at the world in a different way. I have saved these and for the next 20 weeks I will post an image suited for each assignment in the hope of creating inspiration for the viewer.

The first assignment was entitled:

” If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it’s a street photograph” Bruce Gilden

If you can smell the street...
