For the last twenty years the candid photography of life in public has been mostly underground but secretly flourishing, stimulated by the wide availability of digital cameras, a profusion of photoblogs, and new self-publishing opportunities.

Street Photography Now showcases the work of forty-six image-makers who are notable for their candid depictions of life on the streets and in the subway, in shopping malls and movie theaters, on beaches and in parks. Four thought-provoking essays put the work into the wider context of what has gone before, while quotes from the photographers expand and illuminate their work and draw attention to their influences and ways of working.

Included are luminaries such as Magnum grandmasters Bruce Gilden, Martin Parr, and Alex Webb, as well as an international group of emerging photographers whose views of New York or Tokyo, Mumbai or Bournemouth, Istanbul or Dakar, all record moments in time that will never be repeated.
Stephen McLaren is a photographer, writer, and curator based in San Francisco. He is coauthor, with Sophie Howarth, of Street Photography Now. He also coauthored Photographers' Sketchbooks with Bryan Formhals.

Editorial Reviews

Somehow the most compelling street photography remains the kind that allows us to imagine ourselves wandering into the frame. — Wall Street Journal
