Street Photography

The Stranger knows himself so well that it looks as if he's been asked to pose. He is so honest it looks staged, hyper-real. I've always been astounded by a person's capacity to out do himself - to do things so typical of his personality that an observer has to laugh in surprise at the predictability of the whole thing. This is where cliche's come from: there is nothing wrong with a cliche. Cliche's exist. They are created by real people and don't have to be repeated by artists.
