Best Street Photographer on Sixth: Jeff Vaillancourt

Best Street Photographer on Sixth: Jeff Vaillancourt
PHOTO BY Jeff Vaillancourt

For the uninitiated, street photography is, well, photos taken on the street – of life, of people, of raw emotion. Street photographers are artists capturing moments in time, but they're often disguised as mild-mannered, middle-aged guys with cameras, like Jeff Vaillancourt. A California transplant, Vaillancourt doesn't make his living as a photog, but he enriches his life by haunting Sixth Street and capturing its poetry and grit – the lovers embracing in the rain, the drunk ejected from a bar and prone in the gutter, musicians plying their trade. Vaillancourt sees it through his lens and gladly shares it with us all.
