Matt Stuart has, over the year, made his name as an original member of a new class of street photographers. Most recently, one of his quirky images was chosen to appear on the cover of Street Photography Now, a book edited by Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren. The book is a survey of the leading street photographers of the past twenty years - such as Bruce Gilden, Martin Parr and Alex Webb.
This month, he was interviewed by Spine TV, a site that published four videos each month, "investigating all forms of life around the world." In this Stolen Moments video, Stuart explains how he works as a street photographer, managing to find the "crasiest" scenes in everyday's reality.
"Primarily you need to know that you're not doing anything wrong," he explains. "Primarily, you need to know that you're not hurting anybody. And that what you're doing... you're confident about, you're happy with. And then, you don't kind give off bad vibes. You don't give off fear. We're animals. We smell fear."
