Angie Jennings

Modern Streets of an Ancient Empire

I am a street photographer. What is street photography?  It’s documentary. It’s a short story. It’s happenstance in a single image. It’s a moment in time that may not be repeated.

I enjoy the challenge of being up close to strangers without them knowing, or with them knowing and silently giving me permission to document them.  I do street photography to document our world.  I am a traditionalist.  I leave the image intact as I see it.  This is life, this is real, and this is who we are.  I have taken these ideas wherever I go and apply them to whatever or whomever I photograph. 

I look for humor, contradiction, mimicry, and I study how people are in social situations or in private moments.  Maybe they wouldn’t think it’s the most flattering of images, but it could be the most real image of them. 

This is real life, this is your life, and this is my life through the lens.
