Street photo in Moscow-in the net you can find thousands of pictures of the city, its residents and guests of the capital. Every day hundreds of people walking around Moscow and shoot, shoot, shoot. Bank Street photos grows and, probably, every minute of city life in the pictures.
Street photography is so important than Moscow? Now we just look at the pictures, he looks people discuss and after a couple of minutes to forget that only something looked. Usually forget. Some snapshots. Something they care about and cry out of interest. But imagine you are watching photos taken today, through 20-40 years. Evaluate these photos you'll already be different. After all, what is street photography? This is a freeze frame, stopped and fixed the time of life of city streets. You can learn the history, read scientific papers, listen to historians, but nothing fully reflects the lives of people like street photography. I wanted to say-"ordinary people", but it's a cliché I strongly dislike. In fact no ordinary people-everyone is complicated and unique.
Street photography allows you to assess the mood, lifestyle, the General background of what is happening. If you have an hour of free time try street photography Russia the early and mid-90 's from different cities. Great feature-if we do not take Beau Monde. Political and economic society, the top people in the photographs, the General background and life itself are surprisingly similar. Street photo mercilessly captures the mood prevailing throughout the country, demonstrating what happened with us in those years. With all of the entire country.
I sometimes think that symbol of Russia 90-x can be considered snapshots of Yeltsin on a tank in 91, and tombstones brotherhood with 90-x. All of them, in any town are surprisingly similar as like people standing in queues, trading at makeshift markets. An amazing time. I don't appreciate what happened. Photographer-observer. It only fixes and had no tasks to assess, to define for him doing his shots.
Since the mid-2000 's common background changes. And one more pattern-Street photo in Moscow commits the fact that Moscow is changing faster than the rest of the country. People change, the expression I persons mood. Even the appearance of Muscovites changing faster-style clothes.
At some point, and the rest of Russia is beginning to catch up with the capital, but still this is slower and there is still a difference.
Street photo Moscow can be seen as a chronicle of the changes and the city and the whole country. Waves-the worse the better; the brighter, dimmer.
Honestly, I have virtually no photos 90-x-I didn't want to shoot, and look at everything that happened around it sometimes makes me sick.
Time has changed and street photos of Moscow commits these changes. Most of the changes are positive. Moscow rushes, Moscow is built, like transplanted on a bike, walking and laughing. Yes, sometimes crying and angry, but what can be seen clearly when you gaze at snapshots-no the hopelessness that was inherent in the imagery 90 's, no doom and a sense of timelessness.
Street photography-Moscow, 2011-2016 years
Take a look at the pictures-they are all different, and all made in the last 5 years. Here is trust-they are very different from what it was 15 years ago. And this concerns not only Moscow, but also in other regions. Although, to be honest, it's not all so wonderful. But, all the same, let's be optimistic and hope that street photography will capture the changes for the better.
