Street Photography: 40+ Outstanding Candid Shots

Street Photography is defined as photography that is shot in any public place in a candid situation. The image captured could be any random person, thing, building or street performers. Therefore, despite the name of this genre, the presence of a street is not a necessity. Framing and timing are all important, with the aim of creating creative images by snapping shots at exactly the right moment.

To participate in street photography, you really need a good point-and-shoot camera, a lot of patience and a very creative eye. Here we are showcasing the work of some of the best street photographers, and I have tried to choose images that tell a story or are moving, comical or very poignant.
