Should We Embrace Staged Street Photography?

Staged street photography is often given the label of being the stain on the craft. Most people in the scene are busting their ass just to get an authentic, candid frame. Some, however, are bringing a preconceived concept to life and passing it off as something that it isn’t. One of the issues with staged street photography is that is very difficult to prove. It’s always going to be your word against theirs – unless of course, you have proof, but that’s not easy to obtain. But whilst we may agree that we can’t eradicate the fraudulent approach to street photography, is there a possibility we are able to embrace it?
