Street photography | Photographer: Siegfried Günther

Street photography | Photographer: Siegfried Günther | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

A dynamic Gallery in London that exhibits the work of Siegfried Günther on large High Definition screens.

 

Siegfried Günther is a German-born photographer who lives in France.

There is something about the making of photographs in public places that resonates with Siegfried Günther more than any other kind of photography.

Siegfried Günther is fascinated by the things that I ‘choose’ to photograph when he leave the house with his leica camera but without a ‘story’ or ‘brief’ to fulfill.

 

"I started photography very young inspired by my father using a Rolleiflex. I started with 24x36 reflex cameras and moved definitily to Rangfinder with the Leica M cameras in 1983 with an M6. Photograpy is part of my life but not my job. It gives my fun. Photography allows my to fix the time or in real life that means "tempus fugit". I was born in 1954, Leica M3 and Kodak Tri-X go live at the same time. Is this prediction?"- Siegfried Günther

I am not sure which came first, my being nosey or an interest in 'street photography', but a fascination with people and the way they live their lives is why I enjoy the business so much.

 

There is something special and unique about photographer Matt Stuart's 'Street Photography', these photographs are honest pictures that display beauty and significance of the everyday life which otherwise would have gone unnoticed by the rest of us. And what makes them more interesting is the fact that these are entirely spontaneous. And this makes it necessary for Stuart to be in the right place at the right time. He is always ready with his small Leica camera, lots of optimism and patience to make an image and move on.
