The month of May saw us participate in our fifth annual 8Street trip. Five years has passed so quickly – our collective has grown as a group (both by numbers and the quality of our imagery), and street photography has continued to be a huge source of inspiration and the perfect opportunity for us to channel our collective sense of adventure.
Street photography is not always done alone. Back in the Sixties Diane Arbus, Gary Winnogrand, and William Klein used to bump into each other taking photographs on the streets of New York. Here at The 8Street we have made it less about bumping into each other on the streets of New York and more about organizing ourselves into a tight group of friends, booking regular trips abroad, hanging out, drinking cheap beer and good wine and occasionally taking photos.
