Street Photography

“I prowled the streets all day, feeling very strung-up and ready to pounce, determined to ‘trap’ life — to preserve life in the act of living.”
–Henri Cartier-Bresson

"Street photography is about finding the beauty in the mundane, everyday life, away from the factual appeal of journalism or the instantaneous beauty of Pictorialism. ... Street photography is the art of gleaning what is at hand – the subjects, lights, shapes – to create beautifully composed and arresting images."
–Pauline Vermare

This collection of fine prints explores the breadth and evolution of Street Photography, as well as Magnum’s deep and intertwined history within the genre.
