From Distant Streets

Monday 19 September 2011

In the exhibition “From Distant Streets,” curator and in-public photographer Richard Bram has gathered together the work of 29 photographers, including 14 members of in-public, at Galerie Hertz in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, from 2 October-14 November 2011 as part of the Louisville Photo Biennial.

From Distant Streets

Working around the globe in a multitude of styles but with one common thread, these photographs are of unposed, unrehearsed reality. Street Photography is thus Non-Fiction: Its concerns are much smaller but equally important, the little-noticed nuanced moments of everyday life. It is seeking the unusual in the everyday: As in-public member Nick Turpin puts it, “Good Street Photographs show you something you still would not have seen had you been there.”

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.
