 Street Photography Now exhibtion was previously shown in Paris during November 2010, to celebrate the launch of the book Street Photography Now published by Thames & Hudson. The exhibtion was organised in the streets around the Canal Saint Martin neighborhood. In a meaning to take street photography back to the streets, the photos popped up in ordinary storefronts — including a bakery, a drugstore, and a hair salon — allowing people to see the images where they’re most at home: in the streets.

With an help from Wolfgang Zurborn  who went to visit the street photographic trail and proposed to put the show at Litchblick Gallery in Colgne, the prints soon took the road  (with an help from Frederic Lezmi as the driver) heading in direction to Germany in early december.

For the opening of Street Photography Now, Tina Schelhorn and Wolfgang Zurborn , hosted a well packed Xmas Party,  as it could be seen in the slideshow bellow showing the installation on view at Litchblick Gallery :

 I would like to warmly thank Ute Noll, Tina Shelhorn and Wolgang Zurborn for their collaboration and contribution in expanding the show to more photographers. Warmest thanks of course to the participating photographers (they are 23! ), to Stephen McLaren and Sophie Howarth, the authors of the book (also don’t miss their Street Phhotography Now project) and last but not least to  Johanna Neurath and to Helene Borraz  at Thames & Hudson, for their trust and support in this exciting adventure.
