The Los Angeles Center of Photography is pleased to announce our Fifth Annual Street Shooting Around the World Exhibition! The exhibit will run from February 8 – March 8, 2019, with opening night reception scheduled for Friday, February 8, 7-10 pm, 2019. The theme is street shooting around the world. The juror, Nick Turpin, will select between 40-50 images based on creativity, originality, and quality. In addition, another 40-50 images will be chosen for a virtual gallery display via LACP’s website. There is no limit to the amount of images which can be submitted.
STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is a genre of photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. ‘Street’ simply refers to a place where human activity can be seen, a place to observe and capture social interaction. The subject can even be absent of any people and can be that of object or environment where an object projects a human character or an environment is decidedly human. Framing and timing are key aspects of the craft, with the aim of creating images at a decisive or poignant moment. Alternatively, the street photographer may seek a more prosaic depiction of the scene, as a form of social documentary.
1st prize will receive $1,000 in cash, six photos in the exhibit, plus an invitation to show work during the STREET WEEK in LA presentations (February 4-7, 2019).
Honorable mentions will be recognized as well.
The competition is open to all ages and experience levels
