The Street Photographer’s Manual – Revised Edition

The Street Photographer’s Manual – Revised Edition

This updated edition (the first edition was published in 2014) profiles twenty of the world’s leading street photographers and teaches readers how to capture profound urban moments.

In recent years, photo sharing on social media has rejuvenated street photography, and its spirit has been reborn. The Street Photographer’s Manual is about the possibilities of street photography as a medium, and how it can be approached in an accessible way.

The book begins with an overview of street photography, examining its past, present, and future, and looking at how the genre has changed over time. The reader is then introduced to twenty of the most acclaimed international street photographers. This new, revised edition features six new photographers: Troy Holden, Merel Schoneveld, Melissa Breyer, David Gaberle, Michelle Groskopf, and Craig Whitehead.

Integrated within the profiles are twenty fully illustrated tutorials, including how to shoot a face in a crowd and how to train your eye to observe and capture the unexpected. The Street Photographer’s Manual shows you that being a street photographer is partly about looking for luck. But luck requires inspiration – and that is where this book is indispensable.
