I don't worry too much about labels. As for street photography, it may not be a very elegant term, but everyone knows what you are talking about so it gets the job done. I read the descriptions of different types of photographers in an early issue of Aperture, and the one that fits my photography best is documentary photographer: "I was there and this is what I saw." It basically covers everything, including landscape, abstract, editorial, etc. You could also say you are a fine art photographer. Everything shows up in galleries these days. Better to be too broad that too narrow. You don't want to artificially limit yourself, unless you do.
