Street Photography has been enjoying an extraordinary renaissance in the last few years with a raft of dedicated publications, festivals, magazines and exhibitions.
Now practitioners from across the world have come together to offer their work in an online sale to raise money for and awareness about the work of the charity PhotoVoice.
The Street Collection includes beautiful, dramatic, comic and moving images that capture the energy and idiosyncrasy of everyday life on streets across the globe. Over 350 prints are available, at £100 each (excl. printing, post and packaging). This is a unique opportunity to buy outstanding images by leading photographers, many of which have been exhibited and published widely but never previously made available for sale.
Every penny of the sale price will go directly to supporting PhotoVoice’s work enabling marginalised communities around the world to tell their own stories and represent themselves visually. You can find out more about how buying a print will support PhotoVoice’s pioneering work here.
The Street Collection has been organised by Sophie Howarth and Adrian White. Sophie has curated street photography exhibitions around the world, and is the co-author, with Stephen McLaren, of Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson, 2010). Buyers can find out more about the history and contemporary practice of street photography by reading the introduction to the book here. Adrian is a freelance photographer who specialises in working for charities. His clients have included Action Aid, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Parkinson’s UK, CAFOD and Great Ormond St Hospital Children’s Charity.
Images can be purchased online from April 11 – 25th 2012. All images are available in a limited edition of ten, and will be printed by Metro Imaging and posted direct to buyers.
