Il genere e la modernità. Una riflessione sulle fonti per riformulare il concetto di Street Photography
How to Cite
The notion of Street Photography – increasingly popular nowadays in the online environment – is characterized by a layered and elusive identity. This paper proposes to re-examine its possible definitions, its history, canon, and boundaries through the filter of Rick Altman’s theory of film genre. At the same time, the paper aims at connecting the reflections on photography and the urban environment to the wider strand of studies in the humanities that revolve around the concept of modernity.
