Many fellow photographers that I know shy away from Street Photography, the idea of taking photos of another person without their permission is a bit of a polarizing topic both in and outside the photography realm. But there are many well respected and famous photographers who made their career doing that. It’s a subject I dable with on occation, mostly sticking to shorter lenses, or more unique cameras (like a Polaroid, or my Rolleiflex). A trip into Toronto to see my friend Sean’s Gallery opening gave me a chance to capture some street images, mostly on the long subway ride to and from my car which was parked at the far west end of the Bloor-Danforth line. I’m actually pretty pleased with the results of this week, it was hard to pick seven images, but as I got some shots outside the subways system, I kept the ones posted here to the subject of Transit people.

  1. HI Alex,
    I’m a friend of Jan Normandie. Your people photographs are very very sensitively framed and taken. I admire your skill here as I noticed this very clearly. Your Speed Graphic photos being in a different genre, landscape and using a slightly long lens don’t normally make this as apparent although the tone and resolution are very nice. I used to shoot with a crown briefly.
