We are privy to the sadness, happiness, and mysteries in the live’s of complete strangers; and we get a feeling, even without understanding the language – that something important is going on.
And so as street photographers we step into the privacy of our fellow denizens because we are voyeurs at heart. But if we let the image age for ten years, it takes on a new meaning, as the psychological distance increases. As our physical distance for taking these sorts of shots decreases – the eyes become signposts and expressions draw us in.
