Street photography is interesting because it not only reflects the creators inner sensitivity and sensibility, but also presents the outside world. Street photography reflects everyone equally, in order to present a more kindred view of humanity. It’s a way of saying (through visual symbols) everyone is equally worthy of being a work of art. Whether we show the people that surround us or the things that humanity leaves behind, street photography is always a form of humanism in practice.
My name is Jeremy Brake and I've been a photographer since I was a little kid. I would always steal my parents camera whenever we went on vacation, taking photos of whatever caught my eye. I graduated from da Vinci College school of digital art and design (Halifax campus) in 2016 and have been addicted to creating street photographs ever since.
