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.

Of his entry Candid portrait of a woman on a street corner The judge, Helen Ennis, Head at the School of Art, Australian National University said it is “a very unusual work, the subject isn’t immediately visible and so our notions of portraiture are challenged. The viewer is invited to actively work with the image in order for the face of this unknown woman to become apparent”.

Award Co-ordinator Anouk Beck said “Trent Parke was elated at the news and to receive an award for this work which marks a new direction for him and his first foray into portraiture”.

Maciej Dakowicz joins In-Public

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.

Marlow wins Bowness Photography Prize.

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.”

New York Show Submissions

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.

Jiri Makovec joins In-Public

In-public are delighted to announce that Jiri Makovec has joined the collective. Jiri was born in the Czech Republic and has been living and working in New York over the last six years.

Using a Hasselblad and lots of film, Jiri has managed to capture the city in a truly unique and surprising way. We are all extremely pleased to have him on board as our new member.

Down the Tube

Paul Baldesare

Friend of In-public Paul Baldesare has released a book of his inspirational set of underground pictures entitled “Down the Tube”

Paul says; “The pictures in Down the Tube were taken nearly twenty five years ago, over a three year period. Its interesting to look back now and see the social and cultural changes that have taken place since the late 1980’s. The Underground hasn’t changed that much it is still one of the most familiar aspects of traveling in and around London but to take a similar set of pictures today would I believe be a great deal more challenging with the increased awareness of the camera and the flood of tourists and visitors creating a much busier network”.

Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks

This compelling body of work is the result of a unique commission by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. They asked Joel Meyerowitz to document, interpret, and celebrate one of the city’s greatest legacies: nearly 29,000 acres of parks in the five boroughs.

Through this stunningly rich archive of parks, shorelines, and forests, Meyerowitz’s “Legacy” transports the viewer into the heart of the wilderness throughout New York City, much of which remains unseen and unknown to the millions of city dwellers.

Meyerowitz is the first photographer to document New York City’s parks since the 1930s, when they were photographed as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s WPA program.

Narelle Autio's The Summer of Us

Narelle Autio

25 March to 2 May 2009 Stills Gallery, NSW, Australia
Opening Sat 28 May 3-5pm

Since they were first exhibited at Stills Gallery in 2000, Narelle Autio’s vibrant and award-winning images of Australian coastal life have won her impressive national and international acclaim, as well as capturing the hearts and imaginations of viewers.

One of the beauties of her work is its ability to speak to speak to so many people about their own experience as coastal dwellers. The play of colour and light is magical too, giving the photographs a painterly quality that transcends usual depictions of the beach. Autio’s images give the coastline back the complexity, drama and beauty that are so easily eroded by postcards and clichés.

For her new body of work, The Summer of Us, Autio has returned to the ocean, but this time to the shore, to the natural and man-made remnants of long summer days; to a lone pink thong, the skeletons of sun hats and sand-crusted fish. Using large format film, Autio documents her finds, treating each with the same kind attention to detail. Thoughtlessly discarded by its owner, a bottle Reef Oil for example, is resurrected larger than life. Against a clean white background, the glossy promise of this product almost returns to its former glory, despite the all too familiar truth that applying sun lotion at the beach is a sand-caked and unglamorous affair.

Her collection of images introduces us to a lovely continuum existing between manufactured and natural, between ocean and land. Lost gloves slowly grow to resemble five fingered sea creatures and in turn lost sea creatures become curious objects when washed up on the shore. Autio’s appreciation for the power and the poetic transformations of the ocean is elegantly portrayed in these works.

Otto Snoek's two Books

Otto Snoek has two new books out on the 7 March. The first, “Rotterdam”, is the result of Otto’s collaboration between Witte de With. The second, “Why Not”, accompanies the exhibition of the same title in the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam.

Available at Witte de With, and via the following distributors:

D.A.P., New York (USA only), online catalogue:, e-mail, phone +1 212 627 1999

Why Not
Text: Henk Oosterling
Graphic Design: Studio Beige
Hardcover, 140pp

ISBN 978-90-5973-114-1 [English edition]
ISBN 978-90-5973-109-7 [Dutch edition]

€ 32.50 [Netherlands]
€ 35.00 [Europe]
€ 37.50 [outside Europe]

In the Netherlands, the event culture has led to far-reaching changes in public areas. They are primarily perceived and used as stages for consumption, with public partying, shopping and celebrating.

Over ten years, Otto Snoek visualizes the ambivalent relationship between the promise and the letdown of our modern way of urban life.

The photographs in “Why Not” focus on contemporary forms of leisure: festivals, soccer games and parties. Looking at these promises of mass culture, Snoek exposes the increasingly commercial character of urban life, as well as people’s uniformity in a crowd.

Trent's Christmas Bucket

The Christmas Tree Bucket is humour of the blackest hue. Operatic in its vision and darkly satirical in its style, Trent Parke snaps the family rituals of Christmas with the in-laws and builds a gritty gothic tale of a nightmare lurking in the suburban shadows.

Trent's Favorite Things

Trent Parke

In the final talk of the series My Favorite Things, Trent Parke will be making a fascinating, personal exploration of the various elements of the photographic medium, giving us his own angle on this wonderful art form.

Trent will talk about his photographic experience, artistic inspiration and technical expertise, with reference to the images that have influenced him – both his own and other photographers’.

Jeff Ladd's Books on Books

Jeff Ladd has started an exciting new project, under the umbrella of his publishing company ‘Errata Editions’.

The ‘Books on Books’ series is an on-going publishing project dedicated to making rare and out-of-print photography books accessible once again to photobook enthusiasts.

Each edition presents the entire content, page for page, of an original master bookwork that has, until now, been too rare or prohibitively expensive for most of us to experience. These are not facsimiles, but complete studies of those original masterpieces. Through a mix of classic and contemporary titles, the series will span the breadth of practice as it has appeared on the printed page, allowing further study into the creation and meanings of these great works of art.

The first two-thirds of each book shows, page for page, every spread of the original. But Jeff has also commissioned some of the finest writers on photography to contribute a 3000-4000 word essay about each book. As well as discussing the photography, the essays also look at the book object itself, and its relevance in the history of the medium. Other chapters include a short essay on the original book’s production, as well as biographic and bibliographic information of each artist.

You can find out more at Jeff’s fantastic 5B4 website.

Streets of Gold

Trent Parke

Street Photography of the Gold Coast
29 Mar 2008 – 11 May 2008
Jeff Carter, John Gollings & Trent Parke

Street life is our shared experience of common places.
The Gold Coast has a very particular street culture of holidaymakers, beachgoers, surfers, glamorous figures – and its fair share of lost souls.

By definition, the street is a very public space – but there are also private, unseen, transitory moments. Moments captured by the keen eye of the photographers in this exhibition.

Jeff Carter worked as a news and freelance photojournalist before coming to the Gold Coast regularly from the mid-1950s. John Gollings, now best known for his architectural photographs, made a study of Gold Coast street scenes in 1974. And Trent Parke has taken the most recent work in the exhibition, over the past year. Parke’s images may look like the results of chance, but they are the result of prolonged and careful observation and great patience.

Paul McDonough Exhibition

Sasha Wolf’s new gallery in Tribeca is opening with an exhibition is of Paul McDonough’s New York street work from 1968-1972.

McDonough arrived in New York in 1967 with a 35mm camera and an entrée – through childhood friend Tod Papageorge – into the photography workshops and social networks of street photographer Garry Winogrand.

Emerging from an early career as a studio easel painter, McDonough found photographing on the streets liberating. “It satisfied my sketching impulses,” he said. “… I learned to carry a camera everywhere, all the time, loaded with 400-speed film.”

This show is a must-see for all lovers of street photography. We recommend heading down to 10 Leonard Street, Tribeca, New York before the show ends on 10th November.

If you can’t get there, you can see the show online at

Joel Meyerowitz, "Wild in New York"

Joel Meyerowitz

The central theme of the archive is the areas of wild nature that still exist within the parks system; places where the unexpected beauty of the ancient forests and coastline provide a retreat for New York’s citizens.

“Wild in New York”, a work in progress, will be on show at the Edwynn Houk Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue, New York from June 5th to June 21st 2007.

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.
