I caught up with the lovely Gabrielle McKone a few days ago. I am huge fan of her work. She has been posting a photo per day since 2007 ( website below) and I always look forward to seeing her unique and inspirtational way of seeing the world.
I highly recommend picking up her book, "Catch My Eye", it is a photographic gem and the print reproduction is brilliant. You can get it at Unity Books, Photospace Gallery in Wellington, online below or through the Auckland Art Gallery.

This is quite a lovely piece about photography centered around Eugene Atget's work. Well worth a read. Incidentally, I don't really think of myself as a street photographer as such, but rather someone who is inspired being among the urban environment. Is it possible to avoid definition though? "Street photography" itself covers such a range of subject matter and styles are often so unique. The challenge for me is to make a photograph with whatever I'm presented with, wherever I am.
