The STREET PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY techniques of Joel Sternfeld

How do you create the perfect portrait of a stranger? Who should you approach? How should you shoot it? What set-up should you use? What qualities should you look for? What should it say to its audience?



If I were to name one person who I feel has come pretty close to perfection with their stranger portraits, it would be Joel Sternfeld.-said Jamie Windsor -

Joel Sternfeld is acutely aware of the limitations, the myths and the manipulation a photographer employs when creating work. And he uses this to create images that throw questions back at the viewer, forcing them to reevaluate their own perceptions of not only photography, but of the world.

There is a subtle level of oddity that frequently occurs in his images, and it’s this that Sternfeld uses to challenge our preconceptions.
