"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city dweller interacts with his or her environment."
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all 1930s angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
