All About Photo Magazine recently released its 15th edition where the publishers wanted to feature the best in street photography, with the goal of looking for the heart and soul of a society and its people captured in still images.
The 15th edition of the magazine is titled “Streets” and features modern street photographers from 12 different countries.
The images below were selected for their ability to “grasp decisive moments” and for allowing viewers to “become a spectator of their wanderings” and curious observers of people’s behavior. The top three photographers won cash prizes, with the remaining images still published as highlighting some of the best modern street photography.
John Maloof wrote: ‘A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: an eye for detail, light, and composition, impeccable timing, a populist or humanitarian outlook and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment.’
The twenty-five winning photographers did just that and captured life in towns and cities around the world.
Below are the top three photographs, each of which won a cash prize:
Below are the remaining Merit winners, in no particular order:
