Exposure International Photography Contest 2019
As people move between private and public spaces, the street can be a generous and vibrant stage for photographers, offering a window into a particularly compelling place and time for the careful observer. Showing real life aspects, various chances, sudden encounters, and random moments set against the backdrop of the urban landscape is the main intention of Street Photography, and citizens of this urban world is the soul of that. Capturing the essence of the urban lifestyle is now both a popular form of art and an important medium of communication of the modern reality. It is the instant image of life, without filter and embellishment. These are the images that also show the great feelings: joy, love, pain, fear, hatred, death… If you are creatively capturing the weird and wonderful moments of life as they unfold around you, we love to see your work!
