Street photography is whole another level of photography where the photographer is not allowed to compose & set lighting, and where the subjects do not wait for the shot to be captured. It is a situation where the photographer is on their own and the subjects do not cooperate at all. Hence, some additional set of skills is required to be a street photographer than general photography skills, such as extreme quickness, being always ready, being patient, and improvisation.
Street photographs are often so busy, obviously because that is how the streets are almost all the time. They are crowded, filled with so many details and contain a lot of emotions. But this French photographer, Jose Antoine Costa, seems to seek otherwise. He might like things to be calm, slow and minimal. That is why he is involved in his project ‘Minimalist Street Photography’. Have a look at the photographs below first.
These photographs speak for the topic itself, Minimalist Street Photography. There is a drastical difference between these photographs and a conventional street photographs. Further, these photographs convey a single but a strong emotion.
José Antoine Costa, the photographer tends to capture architectural features and urban landscapes other than street photographs.
