Here at five streets we will be honoring some of the greats of street photography by holding a contest each month selecting the five best street photos based on creating new images with that photographers technique in mind. The goal is not to duplicate the images of the greats but to use their ideas and techniques to develop our own.

Where to start???  Who better to start with than Robert Frank?  As an “outsider”  Frank’s view of America in his book “The Americans has had a lasting influence on street photography with it’s symbolism, blurred figures, and choice of framing and camera angles.

See the contest page for entry requirements.
