Street Photography Now
[Front cover image by Matt Stuart]
Yes, it's true – Thames & Hudson have just published a major round-up of contemporary street photography.
The weighty Street Photography Now tome stretches to 240 pages and features portfolios from 46 street photographers. The book is an impressive and beautiful summary of the state of play in this genre.
Street Photography Now is authored by Sophie Howarth, Director of the School of Life, and street photographer Stephen McLaren. Johanna Neurath of Thames & Hudson has been instrumental in bringing this exciting new publication to fruition.
I am very pleased to be one of the 46 photographers profiled, alongside well-known practitioners such as Joel Meyerowitz, Martin Parr, Trent Parke, Alex Webb and Bruce Gilden. Other names featured include up-and-coming photographers that I have long admired, such as Mark Alor Powell and Maciej Dakowicz.
Four essays draw on the work from the photographers profiled, as well as other excellent examples of street photography.
The book is available from Amazon, and will be the shops shortly. A French edition is also available.
