I’ve never been one to make images of subjects performing for the camera but last night had me thinking while out at the weekly cruiser ride in downtown Denver. I started to think about camera awareness in relation to the given subject. Many of the folks like to get in my field of view and perform for the camera usually I let them do their thing and politely move on and observe from a distance until they forget about my being there. I started to look at several of these images with the mindset that these kids are just being themselves regardless of them looking into my camera or not. In a way every subject alters their behavior when a camera is present sometimes we just fail to notice so. The ideal situation of true personality often shines through after continually documenting one subject for a prolonged period of time. This is trust. As photojournalists we live for this. People letting us into their lives. For now enjoy some canned moments alongside of some visual observations. Cheers.
