Eric Kim: iPad street photographer in Sydney
The iPad as a street camera? Renowned Korean street photographer Eric Kim, forsook his customary Leica MP film camera in favour of an iPad when he went walkabout in Sydney this week. It’s a new idea and the iPad is arguably the least threatening of cameras. For street photography you need to be unobtrusive and unthreatening, and an iPad certainly no big, brash Canon or Nikon SLR. Of course, Los Angeles-based Kim has the chutzpah to get away with accosting likely subjects. All I get is a punch in the nose.
