About this group

The term »street photography« stands for an unvarnished, authentic photograph of everyday scenes - scenes that show people engaged in normal activities, but reveal an interesting perspective or tell a story. To recognize such scenes, to anticipate and capture the image - which is a demanding photographic task - a trained eye, human sympathy and high concentration on one hand, technical skills in using the camera and a rapid response on the other hand, are required. (Quote from Eric Kim »Straßenfotografie«, edition espresso/dpunkt.verlag / Translation from German by Michael Habla)

Group rules and description

Photos not appropriate can be removed by owner without further explanations!

Please do not add more than 3 photos (three) at a time and max. 24 pictures per month - just to keep up the diversity of the collection.

ONLY THE BEST PHOTOS YOUR OPINION, NOT ALL THAT YOU HAVE! What are the best photos?

Generally "Street photography" is an ambitious photographic genre:

NOT professional models posing on a street,
NOT your own friend(s) posing on the street,
NOT portraits,
NOT still lifes / architecture photography / empty streets,

ONLY Photos, telling a story about human life in surprising perspectives.
