1 / INTRODUCING PHOTOCERTAMEN’S “SHOOT THE STREET 2013 #STSTREET13” PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
Street photography deals with photographers capturing everyday situations in urban public places, such as street scenes, parks, rail stations, shopping centres, and so on.
The urban photographer attempts to capture the soul of the city in each scene, portraying the interactions among its people as actors on the urban landscape. Of the interplay of positive and negative space, urban fixtures, traffic, the ambience enveloping the scene, pace, inhabitants and their customs, the photographer acts as witness: a reflection in a shop window, a shadow, a pedestrian lost in thought, birds, the nervous hands of an old lady, a smile. A kiss, a sleeping subway passenger, coffee at a sidewalk café, the patience of waiting at a bus stop, another shadow. Maybe you. Different scenes, different actors. Time transforms the scene, sometimes abruptly. Shoot first, ask questions later.
Photocertamen is pleased to announce the "SHOOT THE STREET 2013 #STSTREET13" competition, open to all those lovers of photography who wish to test their talent by taking the pulse of the street.
