This celebration of contemporary street photography--in all its edgy, strange, beautiful, haunting, colorful, and humorous glory--brings together the work of a new generation of talented artists. Over the past few decades, the long tradition of street photography has been wholly transformed by the proliferation of digital cameras, the Internet, and smartphones. A new generation of photographers have embraced this modern technology to capture the world around us in a way that is un-staged, of-the- moment, and real. Exploring this rich seam of emergent and exciting street photography, the 100 photographs featured in this book--the majority of which are previously unpublished and taken in the last few years--are presented on double-page spreads along with commentary about the work and its creator. Curated by David Gibson, a street photographer and expert in the genre, this stunning book offers a truly global collection of images. Gibson's insightful introduction gives an insider's overview of street photography, illuminating its historic importance and its renaissance in the digital age.

Die Entdeckung des völlig im Verborgenen entstandenen Werks der 2009 im Alter von 83 Jahren verstorbenen Vivian Maier ist eine photohistorische Sensation. Aus Frankreich stammend, verdiente Vivian Maier ihren Lebensunterhalt in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Kindermädchen in Chicago und New York. Auf eigene Rechnung und Gefahr und außerhalb jeder Öffentlichkeit führte sie eine Art Doppelleben als Street Photographer. Ihr Entdecker John Maloof legt ihr Werk in unserem Buch erstmals einer staunenden internationalen Öffentlichkeit vor. Einige der Photographien wurden kürzlich in Deutschland in der Galerie von Hilaneh von Kories in Hamburg gezeigt.

Der Fotograf Brandon Stanton begann im Sommer 2010 das ehrgeizige Projekt, ein fotografisches Porträt von New York City zu erschaffen. Aus den daraus entstandenen Fotos und Interviews wurde der Blog Humans of New York mit aktuell über 14 Millionen Fans auf Facebook. Das 2013 veröffentlichte Buch Humans of New York, das auf dem Blog basierte, schoss sofort an die Spitze der New York Times-Bestsellerliste und blieb dort für über 45 Wochen. Nun ist Brandon Stanton zurück, mit dem Buch, auf das alle gewartet haben: Humans of New York: Die besten Storys. Seit Stanton angefangen hatte, Menschen in den Straßen von New York zu interviewen, war der Dialog mit ihnen genauso detailliert, faszinierend und bewegend gewesen wie die Fotos selbst. Humans of New York: Die besten Storys zeigt völlig neue Personen in großartigen Fotos mit längeren, tiefergehenden Geschichten, die mit noch mehr Offenheit überraschen und uns aufs Neue erstaunen.

Der Wegweiser für eine Flucht aus dem Hamsterrad und ein Manifest für eine neue Gewichtung zwischen Leben und Arbeiten.

Es wird alles immer schlimmer, eine schreckliche Nachricht jagt die andere: Die Reichen werden reicher, die Armen ärmer. Es gibt immer mehr Kriege, Gewaltverbrechen, Naturkatastrophen. Viele Menschen tragen solche beängstigenden Bilder im Kopf. Doch sie liegen damit grundfalsch. Unser Gehirn verführt uns zu einer dramatisierenden Weltsicht, die mitnichten der Realität entspricht, wie der geniale Statistiker und Wissenschaftler Hans Rosling erklärt. Wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird • ein sicheres, auf Fakten basierendes Gerüst besitzen, um die Welt so zu sehen, wie sie wirklich ist • die zehn gängigsten Arten von aufgebauschten Geschichten erkennen • bessere Entscheidungen treffen können • wahre Factfulness erreichen – jene offene, neugierige und entspannte Geisteshaltung, in der Sie nur noch Ansichten teilen und Urteile fällen, die auf soliden Fakten basieren

World street photography photobook contains 103 great photos from 47 Photographers from 20 countries. The book contains an extra reportage about the Ashalayam organisation in Kalkota and an index with all photographers within this book. All profit (100%) of this book will directly go to the Ashalayam organisation. Members of the kujaja.com team have always had a soft spot for 'street' photography, so much so that they even launched a sister web site dedicated to good 'street' photography: http://world-street.photography/en/The quality of photography demanded that a 'street' photo book be published. The book has turned into one of the most popular projects we have completed. With some world famous street photographers also getting involved to support the charity work, the final publication turned out to be one if not the best charity books we have ever printed. We decided to print this and distribute it ourselves. It took the team time to find a great printing company and then to do the shipping, but the effort was worthwhile as we managed to cut the costs of the book to allow more sales. As with all our books 100% of the profits will be donated to the small charity that we nominated.The book was published in August 2014 and all the money raised will be going to the Ashalayam Organisation in Kolkata, India. They do amazing work helping street orphans, giving them food, shelter and education. We supported the Ashalayam Organisation with the One Minute on Earth 2013 project and look forward to raising a lot of charity money again for the street kids of Kolkata.See more of our charity photo book projects at: http://www.kujaja.com or at http://world-street.photography
