    Social documentary photography?

    No, we were talking about it 6/8 months ago. Generically it is Lifestyle Photography, but there is another name for the mundane, everyday.

    I was thinking of New Topographics, but that is places, not lifestyle. I do do some NT at times viz https://flic.kr/p/2mjsPvE

    The word for “every day” is quotidian. It is more commonly used in French than English but means the same. Any help?

    Never heard it in relation to photography, but now I understand all those French cafes around London :)

    Me neither. It is pretty rare in English, I’ve only seen it a couple of times in the paper - “in a break from the quotidian” sort of context. In Brussels it was in quotidian use in Le Soir

    I take it 'boring shite' isn't the term being searched for? ;)

    Something realism?

    Neglected Reality.


    Or Harry Callahan nowadays.

    Mundane realism, or banal realism will do. Like all those Victorian and Edwardian street scenes that are so highly valued today ;)

    Until today I'd quite forgotten Alec Soth's images. I'm not sure he slots them into any particular genre, but social documentary for sure.

    Owing to Zou making a comment about my Berlin photos, I have opened the Berlin folder on my HD. I really am crap at editing photos soon after taking them. This, taken in 2017 has only just been edited!

    Not sure whether it is lost in the darkness and needs cropping in somewhat.

    I keep finding pictures I’d forgotten. I had 1700 unlabelled in LR, down to about 1300 now. Many unedited. I also used DPP for 5 or 6 years so not edited in LR.

    I edited one not long after I had come back from Berlin and has been posted before. Now done a different one on a different but similar shot. I didn't originally like the full face of the reflection on the LHS, hence why I did the other. I quite like it now.

    And the version on a different image which has been posted before.
