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

David Gibson ( has taken street photographs for over 30 years, much of it in London, a city he is fond of and knows very well. He is one of the founder members of In-public the international collective of street photographers and known for his work in both black and white and color which have been widely published and exhibited. This includes Street Photography Now (2011) an anthology of the world’s leading street photographers and the exhibition / book, London Street Photography 1860-2010 at the Museum of London.

David is also known as a tutor on his particular subject that is street photography which he views in its broadest terms. He has taught many workshops in London and other cities worldwide such as Beirut and Singapore and more recently in Lisbon and Madrid. These workshops led to his writing the book, The Street Photographer’s Manual (2014) with Thames and Hudson. The book has become a best seller around the world. His other books are 100 Great Street Photographs (2017) and Street Photography: A History in 100 Iconic Images (2019), both published by Prestel.
