    I like that his photography can relate to everyones everyday life because everyone walks around town doing different things, and he captures that.

    I think that the way he works is special because he sees pictures as life which is special.
    His pictures say that the condition of the human race is different varying on every person.
    Yes it does because its real life moments being captured as a picture.
    Because they might not like the style of photography that he shoots.
    I learned that street photography ranges from things happening around in the city or board walks and all the different activities going on around us.

    1. I really liked Winogrand’s photography, it seems like all of his photos have elements of symbolism or a deeper meaning, an aspect I enjoy in photography.
    2. I think the way he works is very difficult, because his process makes it so he doesn’t know what images he had shot until the film can be processed. A moment he may have had high hopes for might not have even turned out.
    3. I think that his photots show a really accurate representation of human condition with the variety and realism.
    4. I believe his pictures definitely show reality in the way that he just captures what he sees in the form and beauty that it is.
    5. Because his photography takes a common setting and adds an artistic twist many would not notice, in a way he accents unappreciated beauty we walk past every day.
    6. I have learned that there is more to photography than heavy editing and planning everything out in a scripted way.

    I like how he waits for the perfect moments in life to cature the pictures.
    Its very unique and interesting.
    His pictures show how society actually is and he captured it on camera.
    Yes because he captures everyday life as it actually is, and not with the people posing.
    Because his work is so natrual. he gets people in their everyday state6 instead of having them pose. not many photographers do this.
    I learned street photogrphy isnt just pictures of the streets and the buildings, its of the life that occurs in these streets.
