International Street Photography Awards 2011

Being a huge admirer of photojournalism, any type of natural and candid photography catches my attention. Street Photography is one such genre of photography where the real skill lies in finding that right moment to capture a ”pure” image – pure in the sense that the subjects, their actions, and expressions are not posed or forced while they directly or indirectly interact with their surroundings.

Recently, I came across an article about the  “2011 International Street Photography Awards” hosted by the “London Street Photography Festival” and I was immediately taken to the variety of artistic images submitted from all around the globe showcasing little pieces of the photographers’ worlds.

I am sharing a few of my favorites, selected from the finalists’ entries. You can see more at London Street Photography Festival and while you are there, maybe submit a some of your own as they are looking for submissions for the 2012 Awards! Good Luck!

{ note to self: make more time in 2012 for some serious street photography! }
