Charalampos Kydonakis joins In-Public

We are always pleased to announce new members and this is especially so with a photographer like Charalampos Kydonakis. Born in Crete and also known as Dirty Harrry, his style brings something fresh to In-Public because it deals so directly and often up close with the human theatre of the street. Charalampos’s photographs – sometimes with the use of flash – are challenging, surreal, wild, and occassionally strangely beautiful.

David Solomons Up West Book

“After I had shot the Underground images during the mid 1990′s, I set my sights on a project about London that was based on street level. For a few years I started a number of unconvincing stabs at this, but never really figured out exactly what would have worked, as London was too large a city to really do justice over a set of 60 or so pictures. Then in 2001, I realized the West End was usually my first port of call to take pictures, and the phrase ‘up west’ came to mind and a project was born. Over 12 years I wandered the busy shopping areas of Oxford Street and Covent Garden, drank in almost every pub in Soho, and stumbled across dozens of demonstrations, events, street parties and cultural festivals. Along with all the other usual comings and goings, I finally managed to put these pictures together into something I hope will make sense.”

Mark Powell's - Open at Noon

Mark Powell’s new book “Open at Noon” has been released and is available in all good Photobook Stores.

Mark’s book invites us to explore a world both apparently known to us and, at the same time, strangely different. Powell’s images captured across Latin America configure a multi-layered narrative that moves from the known to the tortuous, from composition to imbalance, from humor to an unsettling disquiet.

Through A Glass Darkly

Nick Turpin’s three year project Through A Glass Darkly has been published over five pages of The Sunday Times Magazine. Working with a long lens at night, Nick made candid portraits of London bus commuters as they made their journey home during the cold winter months. The project continues Nick’s interest in photographing aspects of life in major modern cities.

Prints from the project are available in three sizes as limited edition prints here.

Saul Leiter: Black and White

We are very pleased to add a second gallery of Saul Leiter’s work to our ‘Masters’ section. Rightly regarded as a pioneer of color photography Saul Leiter was equally comfortable with taking black and white photographs. The 30 images here which are mainly from the 1950s are arguably proof that he was a rare master of both color and monochrome.

With thanks to the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York and especially Margit Erb.



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.
