Harvey Stein – street photography
Tonight, I went to an opening of some street photography by Harvey Stein. He had an amazing eye for people, and the show is at the Robert Anderson gallery in Cherry Creek.
I had a chance to ask him, if it was getting any easier in the modern day, and he mentioned it was a little more difficult, since many people now want to know what the pictures will be used for. I should have guessed in the days of Facebook, more people are concerned about how a stranger will use their image.
He had some books of his images, but had printed some prints of the gallery. The silver prints just looked stunning in comparison to the images in the book. I would have been happy with the images in the book, if I hadn’t seen the prints.
His work was inspiring, so I did a little street photography myself. I was more interested in the architecture.
These photos were done with my Fuji X100T, which has a much more retro user interface. These are jpegs out of the camera in the film emulation mode.
My father always was interested in maps, so if he was still alive I could see him in this shoppe. Come to think of it, I might find it worth while to explore it as well.
