  • Description
    Street Photographer Mitchell Funk breaks with tradition and shoots street photography in color. Today in 2022 this does not seem like a big deal. But 52 years ago in 1970 it was quite a trailblazing effort. Color captures something that is missing in Black and White. It's a greater sense of realism.
    Funk is an early voice for tight design, bold color and carefully composed compositions instead of the more generally accepted "snapshot" street image.
    The fine art print is signed, dated and numbered 3/15, lower right recto. Other sizes available. , printed later, Printed on Hahnemuhle fine art paper
