Gary Winogrand, a passionate hater of the term “street photography,” compared photography to a pun that calls “something happening” into question, suggesting multiple meanings and upsetting us. While he was talking about a tension between reality and a photographic form, today it seems that street photography is mostly caught up in an endless sampling of its own conventions. Streams of street views on photo blogs and Instagram abound in photographic quotation while exploiting the automaticity of filter-applied codes. These days, street photography looks more and more like a pun on street photography.
