Street homeless in freezing Oxford,

As a generalisation, as a photographer in a public space, you can point your camera wherever you like ,and I have always believed in this freedom. Importantly there are common courtesies to consider when engaging in street photography, and i think especially so when photographing people living on the street.
You can introduce yourself and obtain permission for a posed picture, alternatively you can try and shoot candidly and then obtain permission once you’re rumbled. neither method is ideal or without its hassles, on both sides !
This was a good compromise in that no-one was visible, but the bleak reality was captured.
Street photography is such an important genre, especially when highlighting the reality of those that are conveniently ignored or worse denied.
