Street Photography (Special)

Maximum can submit 1 image

Street photography is a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The public nature of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge. Street photographers do not necessarily have a social purpose in mind, but they prefer to isolate and capture moments which might otherwise go unnoticed. Photographing overtly socially or mentally stressed individuals is discouraged.
