Sign Up for the Street Photography Now Project

Each Friday from 1 October 2010 a new Instruction will be issued by one of the photographers featured in Street Photography Now. This will appear on the front page of this website, and be sent out by email.

To receive the weekly Instruction by email, send a message to with SPNP in the subject header. You can join at any time.

You may upload one photograph per Instruction to the Street Photography Now Project Flickr Group. You may respond to as many Instructions as you want.

We are looking for candid photographs taken in the stream of everyday life. Your photographs should demonstrate an understanding of the history and practice of street photography – you can stretch or even break the unwritten rules of the genre, but you should be aware of them first. It may help to read the introduction to Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren’s book Street Photography Now.

The Project administrators reserve the right to remove any unsuitable photographs without explanation.
