Street and Contemporary Photography

Welcome to my street photography and contemporary image photo gallery, please click on thumbnail to view a larger image.

Introduction:

Street photography has been a completely new experiance for me and something I have only just begun to explore. Inspired by some members of the Exeter Camera Club a group of us decided to take a trip to London where we visited Borough & Camden Markets. These are some of my first attempts at Street Photography and will hopefully be expanding the gallery in the future.

Definition of Street Photography from Wikipeadia:
Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places such as streets, parks, beaches, political conventions and other settings. Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment.
