'Anti-Manual on street photography' is a free ebook about photography, written by Michail Moscholios and illustrated with selected photographs of his. The book includes fifteen very short chapters discussing in a radical manner, popular -or not- assumptions with respect to the genres, technic, originality, value, inspiration, attitude and other concepts concerning photography.
Almost experiential and autobiographical, Moscholios' book constitutes a collection of rebellious and often anarchical thoughts dealing with simple but also with complicated photographic issues. Sometimes it feels like thinking out loud, others like giving advise or making a confession, and others like giving in to an internal philosophical dialogue. It is bold, it is sincere, it is deep. It is a photographer's soul on paper and "...a warm appreciation of simply following your photographic heart" as David Gibson put it in the preface. Enjoy it here.
"...it takes courage to reveal, to share the intimate moments of a partial failure, to understate that to be a good photographer is not an eternal achievement but just a clandestine touch of genius! "
