The Photographer's Gallery Names Outstanding Contributors to Year Long Project: Street Photography Now

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 6, 2011
Updated: Tuesday, December 17, 2013
Through online and social media outlets photographers received chalenges and were allowed to respond with images of contemporary street photography. For the year-long run of the competition over 16,000 images were contributed from photographers around the world- from China, Japan and South Korea, to Brazil and Argentina, from the USA, Russia and Australia, to Morocco and across Europe.

From the flood of entries two individuals shone through- Jo Paul Wallace and Jack Simon. Their work is well fit to the history of the street photography tradition with dynamism, humor, and energy. The power of the genre endures in the lenses of these talented photographers.

Tate Debate

Is photography is more expressive than other art forms?


Online discussion on the Tate Blog explores the question of the expressive nature of the photographic media. Discussion is initiated with quote from famed war photographer Don McCullin who's work is currently on exhibition at the museum (through March 4, 2012).

McCullin begins by saying that photography "isn't looking, its feeling." The inherent belief, merited or not in this digital age, that photography is real, true, actual persists. This belief lends to the idea that what you see is what you get, that the image before you, the photograph is evidence of an emotion, a moment, a story, a place so perfectly preserved, so strong that its trueness is undeniable. The frame, if well done, should hold even embody its depiction. Viewers enter frames as though a portal- directly as if there were no divide between them self and the image so whatever is captured is allowed to become their reality, and any interpretations are theirs alone.
