Street Photography Now Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Included are luminaries such as Magnum members Bruce Gilden, Martin Parr, and Alex Webb (who are still "seeing what is invisible to others," as Robert Frank put it), along with an international group of emerging photographers whose individual biographies illuminate the stories behind their pictures of New York, Tokyo, Delhi, or Dakar.

Four thought-provoking essays and a global conversation between leading street photographers explore the compelling and often controversial issues in the genre. A select bibliography and a resource section for aspiring street photographers complete the book.
