Street Photography and Photojournalism

One of the first things that strikes you about great street photography, photojournalism and documentary photography is its ability to convey a story in a split second, and to evoke emotion in just as little time. The impact is heightened when you realise the element of chance involved in producing many of these images. The following collection pays tribute to photographers who have a special talent for capturing just the right moment.

Another great idea that I will put to use in the near future. I like the fact that the gallery style allows for a number of images to be used, but has the impression of a large single display. Has a clean, uncluttered feel about it.
