The great American and Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt once said, “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

This poignant statement is reflective in our desire to find the best images for On The Street, and we are excited to announce the winners of this year’s competition. 

For our second annual On The Street Awards, we received entries from five continents, and we’re delighted to present the outstanding work by 24 talented photographers from around the world.
