Curator’s Statement:

Street photography is such a vast field that is difficult to define. There’s a fine line between documentary and street style. I see street as more of a candid capture of culture & specific locations/neighborhoods at any given time without an actual event going on. It focuses on silly and/or spontaneous moments secretly caught, almost voyeuristic – typically a moment that no one thought anyone saw. The main aspect of street photography is the composition of shapes, whether it was a fluke or not.

some noteworthy street photographers:
Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, Bruce Gilden, Alex Webb, Robert Frank, Janet Delaney, Tatsuo Suzuki, Walker Evans, Boogie, Jeff Mermelstein. AND Martin Parr. AND WEEGEE!!
And,  of course, Vivian Maier! -Anna Alexander
