St. Louis Shoots: Contemporary Street Photographers
from St. Louis
March 7, 2014 – April 27, 2014
St. Louis is a city with a rich photographic heritage stretching back almost to the very origin of the medium. Today, the cultural landscape of the city supports a diverse array of photographic artists, including a large network of Street Photographers. Locally, the fervor to document the rapidly changing urban environment forms an interesting parallel to the motivations of Europe’s first Street Photographer, Eugene Atget. Many organizations, like Photo Flood Saint Louis, devote themselves entirely to this purpose. That said, the lenses of St. Louis’ Street Photographers extend also beyond its borders, to capture street scenes in far-flung locales around the world.
St. Louis Shoots: Contemporary Street Photographers from St. Louis features work from such recognized artists as Yvette Drury Dubinsky, Sam Fentress and Bob Reuter, while introducing the photographs of many talented newcomers. The exhibition displays the full variety of work being produced throughout the region by photographers working within the genre.
The International Photography Hall of Fame extends its sincere thanks for the kind cooperation of all of the artists featured, who have graciously lent their work to the exhibition.
St. Louis Shoots: Contemporary Street Photographers from St. Louis is curated by IPHF volunteer and guest curator Jason Gray.
