A big thank you to David Bram for featuring the Wandering Series on Issue 48 of Fraction Magazine. I am also humbled to be in the company of Richard Bram, Polly Braden and Eric Kim. To be quite honest, I didn't expect this at all. I've been quietly doing street photography for several years and sharing them here on my blog and a few on Flickr. When I heard back from David, I was very surprised. Thank you for seeing the potential in this body of work.
I've been a fan of street photography for quite sometime, and I've had a desire to do a Street issue for as many years. But I have to be honest, this issue nearly killed me.
Let me explain.
Finding two male photographers who had solid street projects was not the problem. There are plenty of male street photographers out there in the world, and I am thrilled to show you the work of Richard Bram (no relation) and Eric Kim (cousins). But finding two female street photographers proved to be a bit of a task. I had to resort to posting to the Fraction facebook page, begging for help. Why is this?
Luckily, through the use of social media, I was able to find two, fantastic female photographers who are doing terrific photographic street work. I am very excited and pleased to show you the work of Stella Kalaw and Polly Braden.
Creating this issue has led me to think a lot about the nature of project themes and how men and women may be drawn to photograph different things. I would love to further this discussion on the Fraction Facebook page.
I hope you enjoy this issue.
