24 Oct - David Gibson - Street Photography

An evening of humour and wit, wry observation, surprise and delight, featuring some of the best street photography by a master of his art. 

David Gibson has been taking street photographs for more than twenty-five years. He is one of the founder members of in-public the international collective of street photographers and his work has been widely published and exhibited. He is commissioned by some of the UK’s leading design groups and he supplies several picture libraries with his images. In addition David regularly leads street photography workshops in London. 

David is quoted as saying “Taking street photographs is an instinctive urge, an itch that needs scratching. It’s simply what I do. Some people walk round a golf course, some people take a dog for a walk. I walk with my camera because I’m curious about things and people around me and I want to record some of it. It is my visual diary. I also feel a responsibility to continue doing it.” 

David has written two books on the subject of street photography: 

The Street Photographer’s Manual- published by Thames & Hudson in 2014.

 100 Great Street Photographs - published by Prestel in 2017.
