Street Screengrabs, from Film
This screengrab from Charles Burnett’s “Killer of Sheep” has me wondering how many candid or near-candid moments in cinema would make great street pictures. This one’s not so street, but it’s around the corner, near Meatyard.
Saw this still in the Times, who had a great piece on the film, last week. I pulled both captures from the unrestored version.
Someone could start a blog that aggregates great street photography consisting entirely of screen grabs from film, I bet.
