WORLD STREET PHOTOGRAPHY 3

Publisher's note: The Art of Street Photography, the technique of photographing human exchanges in a public place, is a term that means different things to different photographers.

From those who prefer the surreptitious capture of their subjects to those who interact directly with the strangers they are photographing, street photography as an art is varied and conflicted in its approach to the world. 

The photographs in this great yearbook inspire within your own stories – the visible and the invisible. The book is curated and created by the "Kujaja.com" team.
