In candid moments captured in split seconds, from parks and beaches to streets and shopping malls, street photographers reveal the humour and drama of the everyday. Street Photography Now brings the most up to date review of the current state of the genre in the world: the great masters, the emerging photographers, the new directions. The exhibition has been produced by Third Floor Gallery, Cardiff, with the support of Thames & Hudson and the School of Art, Media and Design of Newport University. Editors of the book „Street Photography Now“, Thames & Hudson, 2010: Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren.
Watch out for one of the most saught after books of this autumn (will be available at the gallery soon).
