There's so much beauty and raw energy that occurs on the streets across the world each and every day. The World Street Photography (WSP) team did their best to cover this, using the power of street photography to document what normal people face across the world just trying to get by. On July 20, the latest book in the series, “4th World Street Photography” will be released to great anticipation.

For people living in the global west, it often become quite simple to turn a blind eye to what large portions of the other world need to do to survive. In the opinion of many, as global citizens we have a responsibility to help. Author and founder of WSP and Kujaja, Gido Carper certainly agrees. This has led to a series of “World Street Photography” books, focused on the finest in international street photography, with the resources raised going to not only win the contributors significant awards, but most importantly to help children who need it most. Carper recently announced a July 20, 2017 release date and excitement surrounding the project is high.
“This is a victory all around,” commented Carper. “Not only do our photographers go to some amazing places, mix with people in a friendly way, but they also end up with stunning work. I predict this may be our best year yet.”
According to Carper, tens of thousands of photos were uploaded from people from 75 countries from the world street photography community. A full 222 photos, made the cut, are in the book from 160 photographers from 36 countries.
In the end, the final choice of photos was the result of 11 Curators working for well over a year on the project. Each of the curators are well-known street photographers themselves.
Don Bosco Ashalayam Kolkata, which the “World Street Photography” benefits, is an Indian NGO working for the rehabilitation of street and destitute children. Ashalayam provides assistance to all children in need, regardless of religion, caste, or gender. Over 500 children reside in Ashalayam’ s twenty shelter homes and benefit from educational, vocational, and recreational opportunities.
Feedback for past editions of the “World Street Photography” books has been passionate.
