We are extremely proud to announce that the well-known Magnum photographer Richard Kalvar has joined In-Public as a Master. Intriguing and often amusing, Richard’s work always lingers in the memory.
Earthlings is a fascinating record of the many human encounters Richard has made during his 40-year career. The book is due to be released in the US on September 18th 2007, to coincide with a show of 43 large prints at the Leica Gallery, 670 Broadway, New York, NY10012.
Earthlings has been available in the UK since April and in France since March (as Terriens). The publisher in all three countries is Flammarion.
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
