Street Photography: Documenting the Human Condition

Two week ago, Chris Weeks published his street photography documentation series, which is simply named “Street Photography: Documenting the Human Condition”.

The three parts of this documentation give an insight into the manner of taking photos in the urban, public space and tries to get to the bottom of how street photography changed the view of seeing the world around us.

“I think I started to forget things and [...] when I’m taking a picture of something it helps me not to forget. I start to shoot a lot. I started to shoot people [...] I just need to save it somewhere. An dif you have a photo you can also share it to others. That’s a good thing about it. You just share, what’s happening in your world, what’s happening around [...]. So I think, everybody who takes street pictures has their own view of it.” (Severin Koller, photographer)

Chris Weeks is a freelance editorial photographer based in Los Angeles. His work is regularly published in Vogue, InStyle, People, USWeekly, OK!, Rolling Stone and other magazines.
