street photography


A juried international photography exhibition
August 3 – 29, 2017

Streets have always been a significant source of inspiration for photographers: the most public places in towns and cities of all size and type provide an intensified experience of how we shape our environment and how we live in the environment we have created for ourselves. Streets offer a bounty of visual stimuli for the eye and the camera to catch. Here we can observe much of the footprints of our culture, our society, as well as the unique and the personal. The ever-changing swirl of the streets challenges us to capture precious passing moments. There are endless ways of portraying the lives of city dwellers, endless ways for photographers to construct their unique interpretation of what streets mean for them.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Street Photography. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this most intriguing subject, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; the street may be portrayed visually on personal or social levels, from more traditional street photography to works testing the limits of the genre as well. We are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

Submission deadline: July 3, 2017


One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. The juror’s choice receives three free entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.)


All photographers 18 years or older worldwide may enter the competition by submitting their own, original work.
