Street photography is the art of exploring life as it happens in the everyday moment, capturing the lives of others in a decisive instant frozen in time,

Street photography  tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter , it often concentrates on a single human act, caught at a decisive or poignant moment.

On the other hand, much of street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter,

giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with.

Since the 20th century, street photographers have provided an exemplary and detailed record of street culture throughout Europe and North America.

Street Photography is the process of finding situations that can be resolved into meaningful images ,, It is one of the hardest forms of photography in that you get only one chance to get it right before the moment is lost forever.

Street photography is closely related to photojournalism and documentary photography and the lines between the three disciplines is often  blurred or nonexistent
