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.
Nick Turpin is a London based street photographer. In 2000 he was the founder of the iN-PUBLiC street photographers group which played a significant role in the modern resurgence of interest in street photography as an approach. Nick is the Art Director of STREET LONDON and creator of the #canpubphoto initiative to identify candid public photography online. Nick is also an experienced advertising, design and editorial photographer with major campaigns under his belt for brands such as IBM, Toyota, Barclays Bank and Jaguar. His recent book On The Night Bus explores the lives of London Bus commuters traveling home in the winter months. Nick has taught Street Photography for The Tate Gallery, Sony World Photography Organization, The Discovery Channel and Apple.
This exhibit is open internationally to both amateurs and professionals.
