Street Photography

All photographs by Dan Kosmayer

Some would say a great street photograph speaks to us, fills us with emotion, or can even give us insight into society and the human condition; they have a social purpose, make us challenge our own humanity. Street photography makes ordinary life extraordinary, usually takes place in a public space with or without people, and is entirely real.
