06.02 Hunting

Hunting is the process of resolving coherent, emotionally-engaging images from places-situations where environmental factors are cannot be controlled. It requires the artist to:
  • perceive what is special about a scene,
  • interpret it, and then
  • capture it in a way that conveys its essence to the viewer.
It's because of this reactive, transitory nature - the conjuring of successful photogenic images from messy everyday events - that reportage (photojournalism) and street photography are considered the pinnacle of the professional's art.
