“The magic of the street is the mingling of the errand and the epiphany” Rebecca Solnit
Welcome to our Eighth StreetWise Challenge ‘People Working in the Street.’ We are thrilled to share it with you!
Thank you so much for participating and sharing your wonderful photographs. Lee and I were delighted by all the beautiful submissions to this fun challenge. It was particularly fascinating for us to see how people work in the streets in neighbourhoods from around the world and our showcase beautifully reflects a global coming together.
As always, Lee and I hope you enjoy the showcase as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
A reminder — we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group intention and guidelines “We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of street photography composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment rather than relying on too much apping. We therefore feel that apping should be kept to a minimum cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a grain or texture is okay, but we would like to see you steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art oriented or painterly.”
If you are a mobile street photographer, please consider joining our growing community.
To those new to our street photography community, welcome – it is great to have you join us!
