Stephen McLaren, Matt Stuart: RECLAIM THE STREET. Street Photography’s Moment
A world tour of the very best street photography today, Reclaim the Street showcases work from more than one hundred contemporary photographers, from the established to the emerging, from all corners of the globe.
In Reclaim the Street, Stephen McLaren and Matt Stuart present a multilayered overview of street photography’s constantly evolving form. Together, they interweave individual photographer portfolios, in-depth case studies, and surveys of the hot spots where communities of street photographers are thriving today. Great photographic minds don’t think alike, nor are two streets identical: follow these photographers as they capture snapshots of people and places perpetually in flux.
Truly diverse in scope, Reclaim the Street pays long overdue attention to flourishing scenes beyond the West, including work by Indian photographer Swarat Ghosh, Thai photographer Jutharat Pinyodoonyachet (aka Poupay), and Brazilian photographer Gustavo Minas. The global, humanistic edge of Reclaim the Street is a love note to photography, as well as to the places and people captured through today’s sharpest lenses.
