About Street Photography Now

Get up close and personal with the worlds best street photographers as they capture the drama of everyday life at 1 125 of a second. Prowl pavements and back alleys, encountering comic absurdities, small acts of kindness as well as scenes of unexpected beauty. Let your eye be caught by a witty billboard, a woman dressed as an angel, a businessman sprinting through the crowd: the human carnival is in town and so the streets are alive.

Street Photography Now presents 46 contemporary image makers noted for their candid depictions of everyday life. Included are Magnum masters such as Bruce Gilden, Martin Parr and Alex Webb. Along with an international cast of emerging photographers whose individual biographies illuminate the stories behind their pictures of New York, Tokyo, Delhi or Dakar. Four thought provoking essays and also a global conversation between leading street photographers explore the compelling and often controversial issues in the genre. A select bibliography as well as a resource section for aspiring street photographers complete the book.
