Street Photographers

Some years back I rang my friend, Trent Parke, on his mobile phone, only to hear back, “yep, hang on mate……won’t be a sec” – pause – the distinctive click of a Leica shutter — and then he was ready for a chat. It really does take a special breed of photographer to tackle the street — it requires courage, curiosity, a sense of humour, a hunter’s eye and patience:
