I was pretty excited to see this week’s Street Photography Now instruction. After a few weeks of rather oblique briefs the explicitness of this one came as a relief. After browsing though some of Otto Snoek’s images I was glad I had a weekend engagement in Itaewon, a notorious neighborhood that becomes particularly surreal and gaudy at night. After having a classy dinner at a local micro-brew for a friends birthday I dragged Lauren through the local clubs catering to off duty soldiers from the local U.S Army base. Luckily I was feeling pretty brazen and just started weaving around sneaking off shots with the flash. I was received better than expected. We jumped from hip-hop spot to country western bar finally watching a group of soldiers fall into a transsexual nightclub. Dubiously street photography I would like to think these images still fit the brief, although I’m still not sure which one to use.
