Dan you are a mine of information! I have even been to one of her expo's and didn't recognise it.

As Dan says Diane Arbus, "Child with a toy hand grenade in Central Park" 1962

that is a little disturbing!

Steve says:

I really liked her work she was so brave, I still can't wander up to strangers and ask to take a picture of them. Hmm, maybe she is just American and I am too British?

3rd May 2006, 10:14

that might be it, your too british! she probably had no problems of coming of wierd or rude.

3rd May 2006, 10:21

Steve says:

Sometimes I envy our American cousins. But I suppose their country is made up of people who got up off their asses and went and did something. (Well historically anyway)

3rd May 2006, 10:32

yes you have a point but they were a bit rude then wernt they just claiming it for there own and pushing the natives away

3rd May 2006, 10:34

Steve says:

Yes but there were a lot of "rude" people around then. There has to be a point when the past can be put behind you and we can all start with a clean slate.

my brother seems quite good at getting in people faces with a camera. Not always without causing afront. In fact, a preacher turned out to be the least enthusiastic subject. Stob being so English? Think Japanese...

Spike says:

i may just start going up top people and asking to take their photo's surely no harm can come of that?

3rd May 2006, 10:40

Steve says:

Unless they think that you are saying "hey you have a weird face, I must show your weirdness to all my friends" All the pictures of strangers I have ever wanted to take was because they have "Weird" / interesting faces

3rd May 2006, 10:42

oh i know steve im not saying that the americans are rude im saying they seem to not mind doing things that they want to do, and if people think they are being a bit rude they dont mind. my brother is quite good at taking photos of people dont know how many faces are on here but there are some!

3rd May 2006, 10:43

oh and dave do it but you will have to have an answer when they say why?

3rd May 2006, 10:43

Spike says:

surely my answer will be 'because i want to'.

im going to strat doing that, ill start with the gypsies donw tolney lane! see how many fingers i come back with!!!

3rd May 2006, 10:45

they will take your camera!

no just say your a documentary photographer or something dont just say i want to . say you are doing a study of people in (place name here) and see what they say

3rd May 2006, 10:46

djd says:

yeah , have a few choice alabis. I don't know how succesful "hi, I'm doing a project on people with weird faces" will be.

3rd May 2006, 10:48

Steve says:

They are brought up to believe in themselves, which when they are right is great... however when they are wrong it can be a real pain!

Out of all the Americans I have met I would say I liked 70 percent of them, and I like a lot of American culture (sic) comics,movies,tv. I do have a lot of problems with their forigen policies, but I have problems with ours too.

3rd May 2006, 10:49

Spike says:

ok ' hi im doing a project on reaction, the section im focusing on at the moment is suppprise, can i take your photo *snap*
thanks, bye!'

3rd May 2006, 10:50

Steve says:

3rd May 2006, 10:52

Spike says:

good call my man! i may start it soon, creata a blog for 'People in the street' and just post random faces of people i take photo's of!

3rd May 2006, 10:53

djd says:

"we're doing a project on reaction to tragic circumstance, and I'm pleased to tell you that I'm not a real police detective and you're entire family weren't, in fact, massacred. Thanks for your time" too far? I have no taste pedometer.

3rd May 2006, 10:53

Spike says:

good call dan!

i think it MAY be a touch too far though!

Publicfaces blog will be up soon for random people in the street!

3rd May 2006, 10:55

Steve says:

"...But they are still dead..., No not really.... well actually no they are ...not..... gotcha! yep they are dead.... nah, only kidding.... but I'm not" repeat until personal injury

3rd May 2006, 10:56

Steve says:

Do we get extra points for getting a shot of someone that looks like a mugger? (without having our camera stolen)

Can't remember where I heard it, but someone was telling me about a mugging where the guy stole the phone took it apart and returned the sim! I think that would piss me off more.

3rd May 2006, 10:59

Yes, im at work at the mo but ill start it soon!

3rd May 2006, 11:01

it would piss me off more as all my numbers are on the phone memory. but alas steve it may be an urban legend as i have heard the same story. or.. it has happend to more than one person!

spike can anyone blog to your face thing?

3rd May 2006, 11:06

Steve says:

Pretty sure it was a reliable source.... damn my failing memory.... I will get back to you on this

3rd May 2006, 11:07

Spike says:

i dont want to make it public as it may get abused etc, but yes, if they want, just e-mail met the picture/s and ill post them, including the photographer who took the picture!

3rd May 2006, 11:07
