Vinod Babu's Workers competition

For we think that street photography is life photography, and is about human life on earth, we would like to not only find great juxtapositions and brilliant geometry shot but also life photography with a more social core. While looking for life photography with a social core we found Vinod Babu. Vinod Bau has made a great serie called Refugess in Homeland (click to see it) and which is a study about the worst water crises in the state of Telangana. We are very happy that Vinod joined up the curators team and he choose his own competition theme: Workers in India.

Vinod Babu: In our day to day busy life, we often keep missing out to recognize people who are out there working. Right from your maid who works at your house to a person across the road drilling to fix a broken sewer line. Especially in India, a country which still needs a lot of support and welfare measures towards its working class so, do treat this as an opportunity to look around, interact and bring out the stories of those hidden gems.

Along with you all throughout the competition period, I will be shooting on this theme ‘workers’ as I am equally excited and will keep sharing images every now and then.


Get going, keep shooting and let's get inspired mutually! Cheers!

Chris Suspect Concert / Party / Festival "street" competition

The new World Street Competitions have already been started and of course like any year we will try to do something differently. This year we asked the curators to choose their own theme for a competition. These competitions will run next to the normal WSP competitions. For Chris Suspect has been making so many great photos from concerts parties and festivals, we asked Chris to do a party competition. You might of course think, is a concert or a party or a festival street photography? For we consider street photography being life photography, which is photography reflecting our daily life as humans on earth, it is of course street photography.

Chris Suspect: I love a good party. Streets, clubs, houses, hotel rooms, it doesn't really matter. I am particularly drawn to the ones where inhibitions are thrown to the wind and people get out of control. It's at this stage when you can capture raw emotion, crazy antics, fights, sex, blood, or you name it, anything can happen and often does. Don’t be a fly on the wall. Go out and find some cool events and do your best to get swept up into the night and connect with humanity.

Show me the life of the party!

Jonathan Higbee

"Jonathan's being behind the camera seems to calm him, it seems to connect him with his subjects. I like that about this work. I also love that this work is in color. So much of what he captures here just wouldn't work in monochrome - and perhaps that instinct to search out these moments of color is what indicates a master color photographer more than anything."
