‘Street Shooting’ curated by Carl Shubs
Carl Shubs says, “For me, Street Photography is all about the spontaneous moment. It doesn’t have to be in an urban setting and it doesn’t have to include people. However, it should be candid, which means unposed.
Some great photographers who are identified for their street photographs shoot portraits, and for me that is a separate category which I would call street portraits. What makes these Street is they are still candids, and that is what differentiates them from traditional portraits that are shot on the street but are posed and/or shot with permission. If they involve people, they should be interacting with others or presented interacting with their surroundings in meaningful (consciously or unconsciously and possibly ironic or humorous) ways.
If you are looking for inspiration, you might explore the following:
Vivian Maier (http://www.vivianmaier.com/),
Burn My Eye (http://www.burnmyeye.org/), and Zisis Kardianos (http://www.burnmyeye.org/zisis-kardianos/), among many others.”
20% of artist fees go to charity. 10% to the curator’s charity and 10% to the first place winner’s charity.
Shubs has chosen the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Hotline as his charity.
