“The stuff I do in my iPhone is in the moment,” Strazzante said. “I’m just out there shooting for myself. It’s different (from newspaper photography) because I don’t have to get captions, and I’m not worried about setting exposure. I just love the serendipity and the surprises it brings.”
— Scott Strazzante, photographer
For the past six years, photographer Scott Strazzante has been creating a shadow body of work separate from the images he makes working full time for a daily newspaper.
Strazzante, who has excelled at every kind of news assignment in his nearly three-decade-long career, was looking for inspiration back in 2011 when his daughter showed him the unique look of photos made with the Hipstamatic image filter app on an iPhone. He was instantly hooked and has used the technique to create a body of street photography that is much more Garry Winogrand than news photojournalist.
