Categories: Culture

Street photography is one of the oldest genres in the art of photography. It was born with the advent of the portable camera. We love her for her non-stop nature, because in the frame there are real situations on the street. No one poses here, does not choose artificial lighting and does not care about additional attributes.

Some masterpieces in the genre of street photography inspire awe. They help us develop taste, comprehend photography, gain a sense of harmonious composition, teach us to perceive beauty, play with light and shadow.

This collection includes the works of professional photographers, including such famous masters as Alex Webb, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Mayer and Mary Ellen Mark.
