In recent years, street photography has increasingly become a language and a creative tool available to many people, to describe everyday life or to capture an extraordinary moment. exibart street, born from the mother magazine of contemporary art exibart, questions what street photography is and where it is going and investigates more closely the relationship between street photography and fine art.
This third edition of the contest, after two difficult years of pandemic, was important for us, and confirmed once again what a powerful creative tool street photography is!
