Ryan_Sheppard_The_StablesThis month we’re celebrating street photography at Henry’s. Street photography traditionally involved taking candid photos of people in public spaces. Through their street photos, photographers such as Diane Arbus and Garry Winogrand helped to change the face of documentary photography and helped to bring taboo subjects into the mainstream.

Now, in the age of blogging and social media, a whole new generation of street photography has emerged. Photographers and creators are making a name for themselves through their blogs and Instagram accounts with their photos of urban centres, street fashion, people, and architecture.
