Seattle Streets A famous photographer project by Hannah Brown

Joel Meyerowitz and some of his more notable images.

My work was drawn from street and landscape photographer Joel Meyerowitz. His career has taken him throughout the ages and he has managed to capture time stopping images.

I wanted to venture out of my comfort zone as far as photography goes, so I made a point to choose a photography style that was unlike my other images. It was a great learning experience and lead me on a fun adventure of discovering street photography, specifically in the city of Seattle, WA.

The majority of this journey takes place st Seattle's famous Pike Place Market.
I had been here several times before but had never seen it so busy. It was literally a sea of people and I got worried for my camera.
There are countless stands selling goods such as food, comics, and handmade crafts. This one in particular is famous for their BBQ beef hombow.
Fish throwing is a thing here. In fact, it's the most famous part of the Pike Place market. Pike Place = Fish throwing
The throwing includes, but is not limited to: salmon, tuna, halibut, crab and lobster.
Seattle is somewhat known for its hills. The steepest streets still found there average around an 18% slope.
If you want to hear quality music, this is the place to be. The people here do not mess around with their musicality.
It's true, what they say. The streets never sleep.
The first Starbucks ever. Completely overrated. Trust me, the coffee taste the same at all the other Starbucks.

The Interview:

September 11th, 2001 was a very emotional time for the United States. What were you hoping to achieve by taking images of the wreckage?

I often find myself being embarrassed to take a complete strangers picture. What advice would you give to someone who is just getting into street photography?

You were a big advocate for colored photography. Why did you choose to leave black and white photography completely?

Of all the photo series you have created which did you learn the most from and why do you think that is?

Nikon or Cannon?
