Eating in the car is dangerous.  Don’t get me wrong; I’ve done my share of car consumption.  The back floorboard of my car looks like a fast food trash can sometimes.  But on my way home yesterday, I watched a young woman t-bone a truck with her compact car while munching on a burger.  Her view seemed blocked by the wax paper wrapper.  I’m just saying, “Be careful out there.”   This next Call is another reason to keep your eyes on the street.  Great show…

Check out this Call for Entries for Eye on the Street from the Kiernan Gallery (Lexington, Virginia). The entry is very reasonable.  The theme is fun, and the juror is active and easily researched. Take a look…

Eye on the Street


Street photographers are guerrilla documentarians. They capture the world as they see it, using small and forgotten moments to present a larger narrative. Themes of class, age, occupation, or background are brought to life by small stories that evoke our shared humanity.

The keen eyes of street photographers see what others take for granted, and depict the richness and variety of our public lives. For Eye on the Street, The Kiernan Gallery seeks street photography in all its forms.
