The Big Apple gets over 50 million tourists annually, and there’s good reason behind such a hefty number. With over 300 square miles that cover the five boroughs that make up the city that never sleeps, there are thousands of things to do. There are loads of restaurants to try out, hundreds of boutiques to shop at and of course, the most iconic park in the entire world to see.
Street photography documents every day life and activity — the busy (or calm) nature of the world and the uniqueness of the people around us.
Though the phrase “street photography” might at first conjure images taken only in the street, this type of photo-taking can actually be done anywhere. You can shoot street snaps in the the subway station, the grocery store and the park. And though it generally tends to be candid style images, it doesn’t have to be!
Street photography is a creatively inspiring form of photography because you can make it whatever you want it to be. So long as it tells a compelling story and brings forth some sort of emotion, you’re on the right track.
New York City, in particular, offers an exceptional amount of opportunity for budding street photographers — with its mix of characters, places and activities
Sion Fullana considered one of the early pioneers and leading artists of the Mobile Photography revolution (formerly known as iPhoneography) since 2008. One of his mobile images was purchased and joined the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art (Atlanta). His artistic work has been additionally showcased in international exhibits, prestigious magazines, newspapers, blogs, TV segments and several book covers. I met him in New York and he talked about mobile photography.
