I see plenty, I dont look for them and see them as any other photographer, just nicer to look at is all. I would say that I've almost seen them in equal numbers here which I think is pretty cool. The last I saw was only yesterday taking pics of skaters in a park.
One is keeping an eye out for me in the city, Im one of her biggest fans, another is in Indonesia but more travel photography than street although it could just as easily be both I guess. Have seen some terrific pics too. I would hope that are not divided by gender, I dont care what kind of camera or lens or any other rubbish, a good pic is simply that.
This lass was doing posed street portraits ...
And Diane Arbus, she didnt exploit people, that was the reaction many people had because they didnt want to look at disabled people and had no experience of disabled people. People that have this experience dont talk like that. Instead those viewers want bikini girls and pics of empty headed models swooning over car bonnets.
She had a lot of love for the subjects, it is clearly evident in her pictures, her depression was likely due to her dislike for many of the viewers. I wish I had the chance to meet her. Her work was not street by the way.
I still think that a female Street Photographer would have an advantage, and maybe not looked at in the same way. A bit like a young male vs an older male
So none of you have talked to female Street Photogs
They dont have advantage and young/old doesnt either. There are some exceptional young, some exceptional old and some exceptional female ...thats all.
