They come from 14 different countries and 4 continents!
John Maloof wrote " A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: an eye for detail, light and composition, impeccable timing, a populist or humanitarian outlook and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment."
The twenty-five winning photographers did just that and captured life in towns and cities around the world.
For this 22nd edition of AAP Magazine, we were looking for the heart and soul of a society and its people. Whether photographed in the countryside, or in an urban setting, the images we chose reflect the diversity of the photographers background and approach to street photography. Thanks to their ability to grasp decisive moments, they allow us to become a spectator of their wanderings, a curious observer of people's behavior.
Selecting the winners was certainly not an easy task, but in the end we hope you will all enjoy this collection of weird and wonderful stolen moments.
