The History of Street Photography – Free Quick Guide

Street photography has become a term that’s almost lost its meaning and impact in the modern age. The true definition of the genre revolves around the idea of candidly capturing life in public areas.

Street photography is about a photographer’s skill in capturing minor everyday occurrences in a way that promotes interest and a certain sense of mystery.

The imagery creates questions in a viewer’s mind: What are the people doing in the shot? Where are they going, and what is happening in their lives?

Nowadays, it seems that it’s far too easy to call yourself a street photographer without any understanding of the genre’s history or indeed any knowledge of where your work fits into that bigger picture.

With the rise of smartphones and cheap cameras, there seems to be a tendency for people to label almost anything as ‘street’ photography.

However, many of them are just snapshots without applying any artistic intent to these images.

To become a street photographer in the truest sense requires skill, artistic intent, and a clear vision for the outcome.

In this guide, author Jo Plumridge gives you the history of street photography so that you can better understand how to be a street photographer in the truest sense.
