Responding to Seamus Nicolson’s Ori, 1999, during the month of September Source Display explores the theme of street photography.  

Street photography presents candid depictions of everyday life in public places, with engaging images that often tell a story that goes beyond what is captured in the image. Scenes are unmanipulated, featuring moments or objects of interest: architecture, people in passing, intriguing signage - all documenting human life and habits. More recently, camera phones and apps like Instagram have enabled users to capture and distribute these kind of passing moments with ease.

Do you document everyday happenings with photography?

Submit or share your own street photography with us:

  • Use the hashtag: #sourcestreetphotog (on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr) 
  • Email: 
  • Please make sure emailed files are less than 5MB and are submitted in one of the following dimensions - 3:4 (portrait), 4:3 (landscape) or 16:9
  • Please make sure your file name is correctly titled: firstname_lastname_imagetitle
