50 top street photographers, including members of in-public, have offered limited editions of their best work to raise money for Photovoice in an online sale between 11th and 25th April.
The Street Collection includes beautiful, dramatic, comic and moving images that capture the energy and idiosyncrasy of everyday life on streets across the globe. Over 500 prints will be available at just £100 each.
Participating photographers include: Nick Turpin, David Gibson, Matt Stuart, Maciej Dakowicz, Nils Jorgensen, Mark Alor Powell, Stephen McLaren, Mimi Mollica, Polly Braden and Johanna Neurath.
The sale is curated by Sophie Howarth, co-author of Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson, 2010).
Buyers will be able to view all the available photographs online at www.thestreetcollection.net from 4 April. Online sales open at 10am on 11th April.
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
