About the Book
The first tenet of street photography is that the character of our culture and ourselves can be revealed in the unposed moment. First we must look, eventually we learn to see. Duets is a collection of candid shots I have taken along my meandering journey toward that end.
My favorite photography haunt is the street, people in the moment, street art & graffiti. I spend most of my shooting time around train tracks, fire barrels, coffee shop street tables, or simply wandering. If I am in a large city I am looking for great faces, or street art with a message. I have two cameras - a Leica M6 and a Canon 5D. I like to give away prints to the people I shoot. I carry a pack of them in the car in case run across people I've shot. People don't handle prints much any more, since images usually stay on a phone or computer. I notice people really like the visceral sensation of holding the image. My day job is running a large hospital-base home health agency. This is community care, a non-profit, & the people we take care of need our help. Shameless plug: check out my Etsy store at etsy.com/shop/KultureJam & my web site at KultureJam.org. You'll find lots street shots, train graffiti, street graffiti, animations, my blog, & lots of liberal politics. Cheers, Frank
