After moving to several states over the last few years, I’ve found that the best way to understand a new place is through photography, street photography being one of my favorite styles of working. In the tradition of photographers like Robert Frank and Henri Cartier-Bresson, I use the smallest and easiest camera at my disposal, my iPhone 4s.

Similar to a Leica Rangefinder — a traditional tool of street photographers — the iPhone is small, light and inconspicuous. The point is to capture life as it happens, with minimal distraction to the people in the scene. As soon as you raise a large camera, with a loud shutter and a big lens, people are aware and no longer in their natural element. The stories in the pictures are what unfolded in front of my phone within a split-second of time. Although these images are published by a newspaper and do carry journalistic value as unaltered scenes on the street, they should be viewed more as an artistic expression.

Instagram was the only app used to make the images and the “willow” filter was the only filter used to turn the photos from color to black and white. If you have Instagram, you can follow me, like and comment on my photos @brianfeulner.
