Street Photography 2015 was established to recognize a segment of photography that is often explored historically but rarely recognized as an important catalog of social currency and circumstance.

It is a medium through which the public can gain a nuanced understanding of the artists’ work and a collective theme, and the book’s physical presence allows it to be added to longstanding collections of such work.
