Street photographs are mirror images of society, the subjects are usually unaware that they are being photographed, creating a spontaneous response to life as it happens in front of your eyes. Street photography is unplanned. You really never know what you’re going to get on any given day. A street photo should tell a story, or causes you wonder what is happening at the moment.

The best way to know any city is by heading out with the sole purpose of photographing it and its people. While there is much to capture in a city, street photography allows us to freeze a moment, and study all of the small dramas that were taking place.

About the Book

Some may wonder why the photos are in black & white. The early pioneers of street photography only had B&W film available. A quote by a prestigious Canadian photojournalist and street photographer, Ted Grant, describes the Author's reason for using black & white photos. “When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!

Barcelona is a street photographer's dream. Public markets offer a treasure trove of photos, so you will see images from La Boqueria Market and Mercat de Santa Caterina. Las Ramblas is always crowded and is an excellent source of candid photos.
