An Inspiring Photographer.

One site I read regularly is the Digital Journalist. This site is the real thing, working photographers in real situations. I found this clip of a photographer named David Alan Harvey, a new name to me but a real star in the world of photojournalists and street photography. Here is the introduction by Dirck Halstead, the main guy behind the Digital Journalist;

David Alan Harvey is a photojournalist's photojournalist. His work is in the tradition of Henri Cartier-Bresson and W. Eugene Smith. He never uses a press card or long lens. He never stands behind ropes at a "photo op." He tends to use a single Leica body with either a 35mm or 50mm lens. He has the eye of painter and the soul of a poet. He is the kind of photographer I would like to be.

To see what he is talking about go here and enjoy this photographer and his work. Just a technical note, it is interesting to see he does not use a lens hood on at least one of his Leica outfits......another rule made to be broken !
