Street photography captures the vibrance of life in urban environments, from the big celebrations to the quiet moments shared alone or with others. A great street photograph speaks to us, fills us with emotion, or can even give us insight into society and the human condition. These photos have a social purpose and make us challenge our own humanity by recognizing ourselves in others from around the world. Street photography makes ordinary life extraordinary, and usually takes place in a public space with or without people. It is entirely candid, and incredibly real.
