Street Photography (judge: Siegfried Hansen)

Although nowadays it is impossible to confine "Street Photography" to a rigid definition without nuances, it can still be identified as the observation and the shots of spontaneous moments of daily life, with no influence from the photographer. The luck of being in the right place at the right moment, the reaction time, the stroke of genius, the composition, a detail, a peculiar expression, lights and shades, the contrast of colors, the perspective, a subject or an object put in a singular context, a gestureintuition, absurdity and the unusual, everything contributes to the emergence of compelling street photographs.
