Street Ethnography






In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of.

In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.

A Syrian In Istanbul by Canankk

A Syrian In Istanbul by Canankk


There are over 400.000 Syrians only in Istanbul (1.5 million in Turkey), after the civil war has begun in their country.

Turkish people spend a lot of money for those camps but those people leave the refugee camps and try to live like a human.

However, they don't know Turkish, their cukture is different.

They have no chance to work but only begging or stealing.It became a social trauma.

Turkish people do not show the sincere hospitality when they first came. Both sides are not happy.

No one is guilty but war...

What will happen to all those people, children?

“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school.

They don't teach you how to love somebody.

They don't teach you how to be famous.

They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor.

They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer.

They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind.

They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying.

They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”

― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

"In conclusion, Street Photography as defined by the images produced by the greats during its peak (1950s – 1960s). As a form it is well defined and understood by art historians, academics, critics and curators has very little in common to documentary photography or environmental portraiture or humanist photography." Evangelo Costadimas www.streetviewphotography.net/…

uhm, I think it's all a blah blah. humanity always needs fences. for me, if there is a difference, it's just the spirit with which you shoot. In conclusion we could close ourselves in a category, but not our shots.

Wonderful collection. Thank you so much for adding mine too. Unfortunately I see similar views on streets here. it is absolutely bother me to take poor people photos but I aim to pasting a slap rich people's face whom never thinking others with photos.I hope they can see some of them and think twice that no one takes things to their graves and it is a great thing to share somethings with others. This can be a human, this can be an animal. it is a great feeling. But unfortunately, people were selfish as ever.

Thank you for putting my work here. I must say that's very sad and touching collection... Maybe it may sound strange, but I'm glad there are people who have "eyes" to see such problems. I know that the fact that someone "takes a picture" won't change anything, but it can be a first step to get people's attention. Sometimes we all just go through the city and well, life is around us, many "lives" of many people, we all pass each other, but we don't look at each other... Sometimes people ask me why I go to the street to take pictures and then I think maybe it will help others with "notice" things...

Strange how does it happen that in such rich planet like Earth with all it's places around here are so many people staying with no home. We are still looking for the life somewhere far behind the stars, but that worth nothing unless as society of humans we don't care about with all these amazing examples of life we have here, so near - people like us, animals, plants, the planet alive itself.
It doesn't matter to which nation you belong and in whom do you believe and if you believe, being kind - that's the best pray you do, that's the only way to show that you are really have soul.
It is very powerful collection of life shots, thank you for sharing!

thank you for putting mine in here.  Some, like "Daddy, look", are so powerful in depicting the most disturbing aspect of poverty: the indifference of those us who are fortunate.  It is interesting to see how we depicted our poor.  Seeing other peoples photos made me realise that maybe I had depicted hope, resilience and enterprise in poverty because I did not want to face up to the horror.

I at first I misread the title of the journal: "Poetry is the worst form of violence". Clearly this changed the meaning, but not necessarily that much.
What we are seeing is only the beginning. Rising ocean levels and new global weather patterns will further feed the income assymetries on our planet.
For sure the pitchforks are coming...

Ii love this. It is evocative and beautiful, harsh and expressive. Ive always thought of poor people as the flotsam and jetsam of society - they're there but people regard them as worthless trash. I am glad that someone brought them to light.

thanks for your comment. yes, it is important to talk, to show. I's not pleasant to photograph poverty, it's like depriving the human being even of his dignity. but I think it's important that we continue to witness poverty in the life of every day... :huggle:

Oddio, non ho parole...sono assolutamente sopraffatta da una profonda sensazione di sconforto; questa straordinaria selezione è un vero colpo alla coscienza di ogni "occidentale"!!! E' davvero possibile che l'Uomo lasci passare tutto ciò con una indifferenza ormai irrecuperabile?!?!
Pare proprio di sì, purtroppo!!!

molto spesso nella street si dibatte se fotografare o no i senza tetto e ogni forma di povertà, per un riguardo alla dignità umana... io credo che la povertà testimoniata ogni giorno sia importante per l'uomo occidentale, che non la vede nemmeno se ci passa accanto. battaglia persa... cominque si lotta. grazie per il commento
