Street photography presents honest, candid and non-staging photos of everyday life of the streets with fascinating shots, which often tell stories that go beyond the moment seen through the viewfinder. No matter what becomes the object of the street photographer’s research: street still lifes, architecture, passers-by, strange details or intriguing signs – all these scenes tell about a special view of a street photographer on the visual archive of life in modern Ukraine and Ukrainians. Photographers seem to ask themselves and the viewer: “Why? For what? How?”
The photos of the members of the Ukrainian Street Photography community presented at the Street Dialogues exhibition are aimed at encouraging the viewer to answer these questions and show Ukrainian photographers, whose common uniqueness is their passion for street photography.
