The work of a street photographer is to capture society. Whether photographing the people, places or points of interest, a street photographer plays a crucial role in depicting history. This niche within the medium has been practiced for decades. It can even be considered one of the first forms of photography aside from portraiture.
Street photography relies on the subject of your images. Are you a visual artist who captures the streets of New York, the cultures of Tokyo or Shanghai, or the calmer cities of Paris? Each of these streets and cities encompass a different feeling in terms of street imagery. Street photographers create stories that highlight the society at large, the people within certain communities and the visual appeal of the spaces we inhabit.
In fact, street photographers create the most interesting compositions of work. They mix light, texture and tonality to create dynamic and captivating images. Some of the biggest names in street photography include artists, Joel Meyerowitz, Vivian Maier and Henri Cartier Bresson. These photographers practiced the art of street photography decades ago, yet their images are still relevant today.
The new wave of street photographers have the opportunity to find the stories within our contemporary society. In truth, the clothing, scenery and lifestyles of their subjects each depict their own individual message.
On the H Hub Marketplace, our street photographers are masters of capturing society. Working with their own definition of street imagery, they create bodies of work that exemplify modern life. So, they photograph the streets of cities, suburbs and any place that sparks their creative interest. This method of photography is truly vital in the medium. While commercial works may increase sales, images of our society play a larger, more important role in the recollection of our world. Our creatives understand this and continue to capture people, places and elements that will continue to represent humanity now and in the future.
