If you’re a photographer who likes to go out into the world to capture your subjects or are an art-lover who appreciates getting a look into the wide range of public photographers’ perspectives, then you’ll definitely want to check out The World Atlas of Street Photography.
The energetic, fluctuating pace of the metropolis has long lured photographers to capture—often candidly—the chaos, character, and incident of modern urban life ever since the genesis of photography in the 19th century. The World Atlas of Street Photography focuses on the abundance of photos created on street corners internationally, including classic documentary street photography as well as mediated images of urban landscapes, staged performances, and sculpture. Twelve specially commissioned artworks are featured, in addition to a wide selection of striking and well-known images of city life. Lively and informative, this handsome book compiles expressions of a vibrant genre and is the first of its kind to scour the globe—from New York to New Delhi, Beijing to Brighton, Havana to Hamburg, and Sydney to Seoul.
