Charles Flowers on Elliott Erwitt’s Handbook (2003)

“Always include hands, because they are more expressive than the face”

" much as 60 percent of all human communication anywhere in the world is non-verbal, being accomplished principally with the hands"

Street photography: week three

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

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:
