Raindrop Blues: is it Street Photography or not?

Hi!

I’m an italian photographer and in the last months I’m working to a new project, “Raindrop Blues”. Raindrops, like in a blues song, fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm, awakening, as they were called in XVII century, the “blue demons”: a suffused sensation of melancholia. Raindrop Blues Project tries to dip the viewer in a sort of oneiric reality, where the rain seems to fall on everyone, creating evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in the same time, melancholic feeling.

I realize them with a double exposition between a wet window and a street scene with rain. In your opinion, can I call it “Street Photography” or not? It’s a street scene, but it’s not totally real because there is another level with raindrops. What do you think? Thank you for all the answers.

I think it is… But it can also be fine art… I think that is the beauty in what we do… It can be all different kind of things. Btw, the images are beautiful!

Great photos all of them and with very creative raindrops, and i would say they are street photography art.

Hi Alessio! Beautiful images! Sure you can call this street photography, why not? I think the genre is very open to the artists interpretation and the image is made , conceivably, in a public space.
