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.
Gus Powell was born in New York City in 1974 and attended Oberlin College where he majored in comparative religion. In 2003 he was selected to be in PDNs 30 under 30 issue and also published his first monograph, The Company of Strangers (J&L Books). His work has been exhibited internationally, including a solo show at The Museum of The City of New York and group exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts Houston and FOAM, NL.
His photographs have been published in Aperture, Harpers, Vogue, M le mag – Le Monde, Wired, Fortune and W, and he has been a regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine for a decade. He is a member of the street photographers’ collective In-Public and is faculty in the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department at the School of Visual Arts, NY.
His work is included in the books Bystander: A World History of Street Photography and Street Photography Now. Powell’s second monograph, The Lonely Ones (J&L Books 2015), was inspired by the work of William Steig and is a return to his earlier practice of using image and text together.
This exhibit is open internationally to both amateurs and professionals.
The deadline to send digital files for consideration is Thursday, December 28, 2017 by midnight PST. There is no limit to the amount of images which can be submitted.
The selection process will be judged anonymously. Once the juror has made selections, all entrants will receive an email from LACP with a list of images and artists selected for the show. The selected images and artists’ names will also be posted on LACP’s website.
There is no limit to the amount of images which can be submitted. If submitting more than 10 images, please repeat the payment process as necessary.
