What is Street Shooting?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is a genre of photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. ‘Street’ simply refers to a place where human activity can be seen, a place to observe and capture social interaction. The subject can even be absent of any people and can be that of object or environment where an object projects a human character or an environment is decidedly human. Framing and timing are key aspects of the craft, with the aim of creating images at a decisive or poignant moment. Alternatively, the street photographer may seek a more prosaic depiction of the scene, as a form of social documentary.

The Juror

Meryl Meisler, photo by Kevin Frest

Meryl Meisler (http://www.merylmeisler.com/) was born in 1951 in the Bronx and raised on Long Island, New York. Inspired by Diane Arbus, Jacques Henri Lartigue, her dad Jack and grandfather Murray Meisler, she studied photography with Cavalliere Ketchum at The University of Wisconsin–Madison and Lisette Model in NYC. Upon moving to NYC in 1975, Meisler photographed the streets by day and the legendary discos at night. Upon retiring from 31 years as an NYC public school art teacher, she began releasing large bodies of previously unseen work in exhibitions and books. Her monographs A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick (2014), Purgatory & Paradise SASSY ‘70s Suburbia & The City (2015), and New York PARADISE LOST Bushwick Era Disco (2021) are internationally acclaimed. A new book of her street photography from 1973 to 2021 is forthcoming.

Meryl has exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Historical Society, ClampArt, Dia Art Foundation, MASS MoCA, Islip Art Museum, Annenberg Space for Photography, Center for Photography at Woodstock, New Museum for Contemporary Art, LightWork New-York Historical Society, Steven Kasher Gallery, Fotogalerie Friedrichshain (Berlin), the Whitney Museum and in public spaces including Grand Central Terminal, Photoville and throughout the NYC subway system. Meryl lives and works in NYC and Woodstock, NY, continuing the photographic memoir begun in 1973 – a uniquely American story, sweet and sassy with a pinch of mystery. ClampArt represents her work.\


This exhibit is open internationally to both amateurs and professionals.

The deadline to send digital files for consideration is Tuesday, March 1, 2022 by midnight PST. There is no limit to the amount of images which can be submitted.
