To me, street photography is more than just taking pretty pictures. At its highest level, street photography is about provoking intellectual and social action. I try to weave art, politics, philosophy, and social action into my work.
Grit Street Photography is a high-contrast, high-grain, B&W style of street photography that seeks to invoke an emotional, intellectual, social, or political response from the viewer.
Grit Street is a mixture of documentary photography, photojournalism, and
street photography. Unlike most street photography that we see today – which tends to have no particular objective or message – Grit Street has deliberate psychological, social, and political intentions.
