The World Street Photography 3 photobook will be released July 21, 2016 with the book's launching at the Gudberg Nerger Gallery exhibition (Hamburg, Germany). The exhibition will run for six weeks, so there is plenty of time to attend and support this Street Photography project and your community.
Across from the gallery is a small office building owned by Gudberg Nerger Publishing. Poster size WSP 3 photos are already being displayed in the front windows. A variety of WSP 3 images will continue to be displayed in the same way for the next several months. The WSP team will make an effort to document each photo when it is placed.
We will be posting a Facebook link for the official exhibition page when it is released by the Gallery.
Last year's exhibit presented the photos of 20 of the WSP photographers included in the photobook. This year, all WSP 3 photographers' photo(s) will be on display, in small format, at the exhibition.
The book has 200 pages: 156 photos from 122 photographers in 34 countries. These were selected from 30,424 uploads. The book is hardcover and the cover photo is lacquered. The first edition contains 1,000 copies.
You can buy the book here in our shop (click), or for none members here: http://streetphotography.photo
The Ashalayam Organization, in Germany, will be receiving 100% of the profit from this photobook. We will be given a receipt for the exact amount of money that is donated when the transactions are complete. This will take some time. Presumably, in January 2017, the money will begin to flow to the street children in Kolkata, India. The receipt will be published on this website. Last year we collected with WSP2 a total of 3543,45 Euros.
(1200€ September 2015, 2093,45€ June 2016, 250€ July 2016)
If you would like to support Ashalayam individually, go to http://www.ashalayam.de and donate as much as you can.
The World Street Photography photobook project will continue. We are planning publication and a similar exhibition next year. To join one of the street competitions, just go to the shopping cart in the menu bar, which will take you to the WSP store. Here, you can pre-purchase your WSP 4 photobook and receive 20 uploads. Or, you can select a different book/upload package, or just uploads alone. It's your choice.
All photos submitted to World Street Photography 4 must be photos shot in 2016 to be considered for inclusion in the book. We'd still love to see your older work to get an idea about you and your photography. Just post those images to your profile.
We will try to make a video of the opening, the exhibition, and the photos. The videos will be uploaded to the website. We'll give you a heads up when those are available.
To all the community members and all the photographers that made this photobook project a reality, our sincere thanks.
