Welcome to our Streets Ahead Challenge 9 ‘Selfies on the Street’ results. This challenge was different to our previous selfie challenge (which was in the style of Vivian Maier). This time, we wanted you to capture people taking selfies of themselves on the street – ‘social media models’.
With many congratulations to Dani Salvadori, Tuba Korhan, Armineh Hovansian, Basak Aytek, Lee Atwell and Saskia Howard for being featured this time. Huge thanks also to Cara Gallardo Weil for curated this challenge and to Gina Costa for the text.
(We would like Streets Ahead to be and interactive group, and for members to try to participate in the challenge). If you are a woman street photographer, please join our growing community (see links below).

Dani has captured all the fun and silliness of the selfie ritual in an image that speaks for itself beautifully. The narrative content of these two girlfriends, out on the town on vacation, is perfectly summed up in the freezing of this moment. Their selfie will not be half as striking as Dani’s capture – perfectly composed and balanced in this oddly flowing space. Great eye Dani.

This shot stands out for many reasons, but especially the intriguing point of view Tuba captures these two men snapping their selfie. The image shot up from a lower angle (Di sotto in su) monumentalizes the figures of the men, and makes them stand out against the strong horizontal of the composition. The beautiful blue of the sky frames the figures, and further emphasizes their immortalization of the moment! Great capture Tuba!
