Masterpieces of street photography: real life in every picture from the masters

Street photography is one of the oldest genres in photography. It originated with the advent of portable cameras. We love postanovochnoe, because I — the real situation on the street. Here, no one is posing, doesn't select the artificial lighting and does not care about additional attributes.

Some of the masterpieces in the genre of street photography are awe-inspiring. They help us to develop a taste, to understand the picture, to gain a sense of harmonious composition, are taught to appreciate beauty, to play with light and shadow.

This compilation includes the work of professional photographers, including such well-known masters like Alex Webb, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Maier and Mary Ellen mark.
