Street photography, also sometimes called candid photography, is photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places. Although there is a difference between street and candid photography, it is usually subtle with most street photography being candid in nature and some candid photography being classifiable as street photography.

Traveller : A vision towards the future.

Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. Though people usually feature directly, street photography might be absent of people and can be of an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.

Traveller : A vision towards the future.

A street photographer might be thought of as an extension of the flâneur, a street watcher (who was often a writer or artist).

Velankanni : A market that isn’t as crowded

The goal of some street photography is to make photos at a critical or tragic moment, therefore framing and timing are important parts of the discipline. People and their public conduct can be the subject of street photography, which records their history.

From darkness to light : It is nevertheless pleasant to have a little light dropping in a life full of gloom.

This drive necessitates navigating or negotiating shifting expectations and rules in the areas of privacy, security, and property. In this way, street photographers are akin to social documentary photographers or photojournalists who work in public spaces but with the goal of documenting important occurrences; any of these photographers.
