13 Jun Flesh and pavement – Suzanne Stein
From the paper to the street, this documentary photographer finds herself captivated by people and scenes that represent an emotional challenge, forcing her to adapt her photographies to the exact moment that would truly describe every subject. She lives to tell their stories.
Larry And Rebel — Larry sits on the sidewalk against a storefront with Rebel on Spring Street in DTLA as they panhandle together to make a few dollars to help with expenses.
When did you first know you wanted to be a photographer? How did you start in photography?
I was on a trip to Europe with my son, exactly two years ago on June 26th, 2015, when I realized that I wanted to buy a camera. I had no idea of what I was doing; chasing gypsies as they panhandled in Bologna… I googled it and realized I was practicing street photography. I became obsessed and began to notice that every little thought, feeling, emotion I had ever felt and would feel could be expressed through the proper use of my camera, in synchrony with my thoughts and observations of the world.

How and when were you drawn into street photography?
From the very first moment I was a street photographer. I have never been interested in anything else, although I feel that I am kind of a hybrid street/documentary photographer.
Cusp — my son, exiting…
