This friend of mine posts a lot of photos he took when he was on the streets, roads, or places where he could see people. People called what my friend did 'street photography' and to most people, especially them who didn't live with a camera, the name sounds cool. However, I bet the photographer himself don't see what he does as one cool thing, but a mere escapism from the reality. The photographer knows very well that almost everything in this world, even the most cruel story of life, will be looked, at least, intriguing to most people's eyes.
As for myself, I'm not really into what people called 'street photography', or to put it clearly, I don't really know whether I'm into 'street photography' or not. Definition's not a big deal for me. I just love taking pictures of human; my friend, a stranger, an elder, and a child (I put family members in exceptions because I rarely shoot people within the same blood line). Human is my favourite object because of the possibility of emotions drawn on the face along with gestures. Expressions to me are the simplest motions telling me the most complicated story ever.
