Punk music shown the 70s to be a ‘different style of music which demonstrated an anti-music genre, this capture demonstrates their anti-establishment attitude they were seen on the streets in monochrome this photograph represented the essence of this era. The architecture and the band so quintessentially British.
This looks essentially like a cosmopolitan New York City centre the style of architecture and the amount of taxis in the road add to the hastiness of the scene. The composition is very balanced and vertically aligned.
This image has a huge sense of scale which emphasises the vast building and makes the human look inaptly small in comparison. There is a sense of transporting the people from one place to another, historically people found time to meander and enjoy the company of others.
This represents a bird’s eye view of a monochrome scene depicting the architecture in a city. It feels very sublime because capturing the moment from that height would give most people a feeling of vertigo.
This image represents feminism, the evolution of the woman’s suffrage and the slow progression in the equality of the sexes. The woman are also seen on the street seeking the solidarity as much for the company of other women.
The street is the area between sections of houses that people live in, the area between is where the pedestrians walk, this enables the use of a causeway where cars can drive to reach a destination, or provides a place where people can meet. It’s a public place, which is usually paved and has more recently been tarmaced, streets can be in a village, town, or city. It can have a vast selection of people residing in them, walking in them, driving in them concurrently. There are many different social classes, ages, all sharing different identities. Historically streets were founded in Anglo-Saxon times and some still exist from ancient times, but essentially the idea of a street hasn’t changed over time, they are resurfaced and repaired at timely intervals of time. A Street could be in a formal place or in an isolated spot, but they’re still constructed in the same way. Streets unite the whole country, suturing the tapestry of the populace formulating easy access, enabling density of large groups in a small area. A street can be called by a series of alternative names; avenue, boulevard, court, lane, pavement, road, route, thoroughfare, artery, byway, drive, parkway, passage, row, terrace. A Street could be where someone in abject poverty lives on the path, but also someone with vast wealth could reside in a house on the same street. A Street could be where music takes place or where a protest happens or even a carnival. This brings all cultures and concentrates society all in one place for a multitude of reasons. A Street represents a whole diversity of architecture. This historically was determined by the wealth of a person, but we have seen in recent times the council providing housing for the lower incomed families.
