Story behind the photograph
Obvious choices as a subject of a street photography are people in interesting situations, people in situations with juxtaposition or simply people immersed in some activity. There is also typical portraiture of interesting faces, hair styles or sub-culture clothing.
Todays photo belongs to yet another category – everyday person. This category stands somewhere between portraiture and “documentary journalism”. It focuses less on persons character and shows just an average person of our time.
Than again, when I look at this elegantly dressed older woman I wonder if the word average applies. She seems to have certain style bordering on sophistication – fashionable but not drawing attention.
