Everyone at In-public is excited to welcome Saul Leiter to our slowly growing ‘Masters’ section. Quite simply the colour street photographs of Saul Leiter are both humbling and inspiring to all of us. Saul was an early practitioner of colour photography, he has a unique vision and his photographs have soul.
We would like to thank Margit Erb for her enthusiasm in making this portfolio possible. Margit works at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York and is also a trusted assistant to Saul.
Welcome Saul, it’s a pleasure to show your work here.

Everyone at In-public is delighted to announce that Polish photographer Maciej Dakowicz has joined our ever increasing ranks.
We have long been admirers of Maciej, as a person and a photographer.
Maciej’s “Cardiff After Dark” work has been one of the seminal street photography stories over the last few years, culminating in a beautiful book published by Thames & Hudson in 2012.
As well as Maciej’s love affair with late night Welsh boozers he has also been working hard in Asia where he has been making a completely different, but equally impressive body of work.
Both Cardiff and Asia are now available to view on Maciej’s portfolio page. We sincerely hope you enjoy the photographs as much as we all have over the years.
Welcome to In-public Maciej.

in-public photographers have shared their approaches to, and experience of making candid pictures in public spaces for many years and in many countries. Our photographers have collaborated with various wonderful organisations like The Guardian, Tate Modern, The School of Life, The World Photography Organisation and numerous festivals to teach Street Photography.
For the very first time we are offering workshops run entirely by in-public in order to provide the very best experience and access to in-public members for attendees. Run over two days, we will be based at the exclusive Groucho Club in the heart of London’s Soho. You will be guided by two different in-public photographers on each of the two days exposing you to a wide range of different views and approaches.
Future London and NYC workshops will be announced here on our front page and on our facebook page.
Inaugural in-public Street Photography Workshop 18th/19th May 2013
The Inaugural in-public workshop will be led by:
Working in the West End on Saturday and the East End on Sunday, students will be set assignments specifically designed to teach different strategies and approaches to capturing the unusual moments in everyday life. The four in-public photographers will convey in words and images their own unique ways of working and encourage the students to find their own visual vocabulary.
Although advice will be given on the best way to set up your camera for street shooting, the course will not focus on basic camera handling so you should be relatively self sufficient in that department.
The workshop is limited to just 20 places at a special price of £400/person.
After booking we will send you an email with details of the weekend and a link to our Street Photography Workshop Primer page.
If you have any questions you can email us Here.

In-public’s Jesse Marlow has won Australia’s most prestigious photography award, the $25 000 Bowness Photography Prize.
This is the first time a street photographer has won the $25 000 prize. Marlow’s winning photograph Laser vision is an ambiguous and disorientating image of a chance encounter during the photographer’s daily travels around the streets of Melbourne. Marlow states, “contrived photographic shoots and intricately designed set-ups have never interested me. Rather it is the uncertainty of street photography that continues to stimulate. The idea that I can leave the house one morning and come home at the end of the day with a photograph that will be with me forever constantly drives and excites me.”
For the judges, the winning picture expressed in a very satisfying way a significant aspect of contemporary photographic practice. Street photography, which has a long tradition in photographic history, is experiencing a significant rebirth. Armed with smart phones, we are all potential street photographers. For MGA Director Shaune Lakin, “Marlow’s picture is in many ways the perfect street photograph: it is a candid image of everyday life, but one that makes the everyday seem both extraordinary and strange.”

Call for Submissions – New York Street Photography Exhibition
South Street Seaport Museum
The South Street Seaport Museum invites submissions of new works in the field of New York City street photography for a juried exhibition to open in the late fall of 2012. The exhibition seeks to showcase the best of contemporary photography capturing life as it unfolds in New York City’s public places—its streets, parks, and plazas.
New York City has a rich tradition of street photography. Such notable image makers as Garry Winogrand, Robert Frank, Joel Meyerowitz have captured the diversity and vitality of the city’s streets and its denizens for well over a century. These artists recorded fleeting moments, capturing the faces and lives of ordinary people as they move through an ever-changing metropolis. The Museum of the City of New York (which is operating the South Street Seaport Museum) is currently presenting some of the best of these historic images in City Scenes: Highlights of New York Street Photography, along with the exhibition London Street Photography. The exhibition at the South Street Seaport Museum will carry that story forward through new candid images that show the evolution of the city and of the genre itself in the 21st century.
Both professional and amateur photographers are invited to submit pictures for consideration. Deadline for entries is Monday, October 22, 2012 at 11:59 pm (EST). For full guidelines and to submit images, click here.

“Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour,” opening at Somerset House in London on 7 November 2012, will feature among other luminaries, iN-PUBLiC members Melanie Einzig, Trent Parke, and Joel Meyerowitz along with many other masters of color photography. For more details and a synopsis of the philosophy behind this exhibition, visit the Positive View Foundation.
In-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.
Our aim is to promote Street Photography and to continue to explore its possibilities, we are a non commercial collective. All the photographers featured here have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday and to capture the moment. The pictures remind us that, if we let it, over-familiarity can make us blind to what’s really going on in the world around us.Read more
