Up your alley typography

The Print Room’s next exhibition “Up Your Alley” focuses on street photography, which is arguably one of the most practised but much-debated genres of photography. What exactly constitutes “street photography”? Does it document the daily heartbeat of a particular place? Does a photographer’s interaction with the people in front of the lens compromise the image in any way? Can a photograph be considered an example of street photography if it only captures the physical space, without the people who live there?
These were some of the questions that the photographers involved in this exhibition grappled with as they trawled different corners of their respective cities at all hours of the day and night. We will be showing various works from professional and emerging photographers, as well as some of the students of the The Print Room, all of whom have shot in a vast range of styles in locations such as England, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Bangladesh and Switzerland.
