Shots of Manhattan Beach

by awindram

“To photograph people is to violate them,” wrote Susan Sontag, “by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them that they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed.” Recently, I’ve begun some crude efforts at street photography. It is something I had been interested in before, but could never bring up the courage to try. However, I find there’s something inescapably creepy about it; you find yourself lingering and following, all for a surreptitious (or rather a clumsy attempt at surreptitious) shot.
