Seeing that and Martin Parr's latest exhibition really inspired me to try something like this - it's just getting the confidence up to point my camera at strangers that's the problem... I don't get any confrontations with my usual subjects
Its really difficult isnt it? I got hounded though town last week by a female big issue seller hurling abuse at me and yet I hadnt even focussed on her or even realised she would be in the shot! The language barrier didn't help and for a few minutes I felt like giving up any form of street photography. Its just confidence and the more you do it the easier it will be. For every confrontation there are many more people who just smile at you and don't mind.
