Street Photography – Humans in Their Own Enviornment
Eligible: Members of the Coastal Camera Club

October 19 – November 25, 2018

In this exhibition, members of the Coastal Camera Club explore the human condition. Street photography, sometimes called candid photography, is an unmediated look at chance encounters and random incidents within public places. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment, it is about spontaneity and the emotional response that transpires in the milliseconds the exposure is made. Street photographs often contain a narrative that can exist on its own. They need no explanation or context to be understood.
