What catches the photographer’s eye when moving through the spaces outside of their home? How does a photographer make sense of these spaces? How do they frame photographs to convey a message, a story, a feeling?

This year’s theme for Artist’s Lens is “Street Photography”.

Street photography is not only about buildings and roads. It expresses instant, unexpected encounters, and the unpredictability of interactions between ourselves and public life.  In this exhibition, artists explore broad themes in their relationship to public spaces, such as nostalgia, isolation, idealism, public protest, science fiction, voyeurism, literature and geometry.
