Street photography is perhaps the best-loved and most widely known of all photographic genres, with names like Cartier-Bresson, Brassai and Doisneau familiar even to those with a fleeting knowledge of the medium. Yet what exactly is street photography? From what viewpoint does it present its subjects, and how does this viewpoint differ from that of documentary photography? Looking closely at the work of Atget, Kertesz, Bovis, Rene-Jacques, Brassai, Doisneau, Cartier- Bresson and more, this elegantly written book, extensively illustrated with both well-known and neglected works, unpicks Parisian street photography's affinity with Impressionist art as well as its complex relationship with parallel literary trends and authors from Baudelaire to Philippe Soupault. Clive Scott traces street photography’s origins, asking what really what happened to photography when it first abandoned the studio, and brings to the fore fascinating questions about the way the street photographer captures or frames those subjects - traders, lovers, entertainers - so beloved of the genre. In doing so Scott reveals street photography to be a poetic, even 'picturesque' form, looking not to the individual but to the type; not to the ‘reality’ of the street but to its 'romance'.

The Art of Capturing the Candid Moment

Author: Gordon Lewis

Since the advent of the camera, there have been photographers whose mission is to record and interpret the public sphere in all its aspects. Eugene Atget documented evidence of everyday life in the streets as well as the buildings and monuments of Paris. Henri Cartier-Bresson pursued what he called "The Decisive Moment," the moment in which the meaning of an event was most clearly captured in a photograph. Their work, and that of many other masters, has inspired generations of photographers to wander public spaces, camera in hand, searching for meaningful moments in time. Success requires the street photographer to be proficient with their equipment, to be constantly aware of their surroundings, and to have a keen eye. Quick reflexes and self-confidence are essential: Street photographers know from experience that hesitation or procrastination could mean missing a once-in-a-lifetime shot. The adage "it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission" was probably coined by a street photographer. In Street Photography: The Art of Capturing the Candid Moment, Gordon Lewis helps readers understand and conquer the challenging yet rewarding world of street photography. The book includes discussions of why photographers are drawn to street photography, the different styles of street photography, and what makes a great street photograph. Lewis then goes on to explore how the choice of location can change a photographer's approach to image capture: from city streets to fairs to beaches, Lewis discusses the impact different environments have on the process of street photography. Another crucial element to becoming a good street photographer is learning to travel light, with minimal equipment. Lewis gives readers practical advice on everything from cameras and lenses to camera bags and clothing. Lewis also delves into the techniques and approaches that will help novices master the art of street photography. Whether your style is to engage your subjects or to remain unnoticed and take candid portraits, Lewis offers ideas on how to capture fascinating moments in time: a gesture, expression, or composition that may exist for only a fraction of a second, but can leave a lasting impression of the wonders, challenges, and absurdities of modern life.

Please note that all blank pages in the book were chosen as part of the design by the publisher. A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: an eye for detail, light, and composition; impeccable timing; a populist or humanitarian outlook; and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment. It is hard enough to find these qualities in trained photographers with the benefit of schooling and mentors and a community of fellow artists and aficionados supporting and rewarding their efforts. It is incredibly rare to find it in someone with no formal training and no network of peers. Yet Vivian Maier is all of these things, a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide—from France to New York City to Chicago and dozens of other countries—and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age. It wasn’t until local historian John Maloof purchased a box of Maier’s negatives from a Chicago auction house and began collecting and championing her marvelous work just a few years ago that any of it saw the light of day. Presented here for the first time in print, Vivian Maier: Street Photographer collects the best of her incredible, unseen body of work.

LOCO在西班牙文裡解作狂熱 曾經有攝影家說過:「攝影,只能與孤獨為伍」,但今次LOCOsnap希望可以打破常規,在孤獨 的攝影路上並肩創作。我們三人取材及攝影風格截然不同,但作品背後都有一個共通點,就是對 生活的反思:現代人往往只關心和自己有關或感興趣的話題,從來對身邊的事物漠不關心,從不 加以細看,直至發現一切快將消失時,才去奮力保護。其實身邊有幾多人與事,每天正在無聲中 悄悄消失?每日溜過種種的畫面與感受,有幾多能留下印象?我們希望揭示一些常被香港 人遺忘忽略的地方:從沒人注意後街小巷,到街頭一剎那發生流逝的光影,由三位獨樹一格的寫 真狂人紀錄下來。讓觀眾觀看三種不一樣的私風景,感受攝影師內心私處的豐富想像。 LOCO Crazed in Spanish Former photographer once said: "Photography can only be with loneliness." But this time LOCOsnap hopes to break the routine and work side by side on a lonely photography road. The three of us are different in style and photographic style, but one thing in common behind the works is the reflection on life: the modern people tend to focus only on topics of their own interest or interest, and never pay close attention to the things around them. Look, until you find everything is going to disappear, only to protect. In fact, there are many people around the side, quietly disappear every day quietly? Slipping through the picture and feel every day, how many can make an impression? We hope to reveal some of the places that Hong Kong people often forget to ignore: no one noticed the back streets and lanes, and the passing of light and shadow on the streets was recorded by three unique photo-madmen. Let the audience watch three different private landscape, feel the rich imagination of the private part of the photographer.

A family is brought close to ruin by a pet python; an Icelandic advertising agency has a problem with a campaign involving a dead seagull; a chiropodist desperately wants to stop examining people’s feet and dreams of becoming a pirate... Stephen Leslie has always tried to capture images that hint at wider, hidden narratives – suggestive moments rather than decisive ones – and Sparks is a book that imagines the weird and wonderful stories behind his original street photographs. It is a love-letter to photography, pairing eighty beautiful colour images – shot on film – with these stories, as well as the author’s recollections of twenty years spent looking through the lens.

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 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: 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: or at

Document Your World

To Andrew “Fundy” Funderburg, street photography means hitting the streets with a simple camera (or even a phone) and capturing everyday life. To do it well, the photographer has to be part of the action—part of the moment. He or she must be willing to be yelled at, and brave enough to pick up that camera and point it at a stranger. And when the moment is perfect, magic happens; the viewer can see into the moment and the soul of the person in the photograph, and that split-second exposure becomes a slice of history, frozen in time. In additional to being an artform, however, street photography has the power to preserve the history of a city or neighborhood and bring its citizens together. It has the power to save the story of the time, place, and people—and sometimes even prove the value of a place that is worthy of preservation. After all, it’s not usually the people going to work in giant office buildings that give a place it’s character—it’s the bartenders, the waiters, the street vendors, the lifetime residents, and even the homeless characters that make a town truly come alive.
