This month it was our pleasure to speak with Marci Lindsay, a street photographer with a real intrest in people as individuals and humans in general. Marci’s love for street photography began when she was a child. She remembers spending hours pouring over one of her parents’ books in particular, The Family of Man. It is essentially a portrait of humanity and it inspired Marci’s interest in people, photography, and travel.
Fast forward to about five years ago, and Marci discovered street photography as a genre while she scrolled through Instagram and something just clicked. This was something she had to try. In fact, Marci calls street photography a culmination of her whole life, a life as a people watcher, an urban planner, a New Yorker for many years, and a film student. All these aspects of Marci’s life contribute to the way she approaches street photography and her love for the genre.
Currently, Marci is a member of DCSPC and Optic Nerve Collective. And as you could probably guess, Marci’s street photography is all about the people. The humor, tragedy, and love you can see right on the street are all prominent features of Marci’s photos. If you too are an avid people watcher, you’re going to love Marci’s photos. They are full of life and interesting characters. So grab a coffee and take a moment to watch our video interview with Marci and enjoy a beautiful selection of her photos.
