The World Atlas of Street Photography focuses on the abundance of photography that has been created on street corners around the globe; it includes classic documentary street photography, as well as images of urban landscapes, staged performances, and sculptures. In so doing, this compelling reference book locates the meeting point between street photography and atlas, between artists and their personal understanding of our environment, not via a cartographic bird's-eye view but through a more intimate, human- centred perspective. From New York to New Delhi, Beijing to Brighton, Havana to Hamburg, and Sydney to Seoul, this magnificently illustrated book presents an international cast of more than one hundred established and emerging contemporary photographers.
