Street photography is a renewable resource. If you dont like what you see wait 5 minutes or walk a hundred feet.
I dont get permission, I dont interact with the people ive photographed, you only need permission or releases if ure going to sell the picture for commercial use. I cant imagine asking the people I photograph for releases..it would be quite awkward...
Remember, not everything is a picture. A good eye can edit before the shutter opens...
As a fledgling street photographer strolling up and down the streets of cities, I quickly became aware of time and its erosive power. My early photographs focused almost exclusively on the signs of an older culture that was holding on for dear life....

I genuinely believe photography to be at it's most potent when underscored by truth. To contrive is to control, and frankly I'm more interested in observation than direction..approaching the next corner afresh, never quite knowing what may present itself.
