Street photography has always existed. Its spirit allows us to know the life of the streets, the soul of the cities and the wandering of its people. As a genre, Street Photography was born at the beginning of the XNUMXth century with the appearance of the first handheld cameras, easier to use and that allowed more spontaneous shots in public places. Nowadays, anyone carries a quality camera on their mobile, which makes urban photography even more attractive and special.
#StreetPhotographyPHE is a call that seeks to unite citizens, street photography, El Corte Inglés and PHotoESPAÑA through collective participation through Instagram. Open to anyone of legal age, the call seeks images framed in the Street Photography genre that highlight some of the distinctive elements of El Corte Inglés in cities, such as its iconic bag, the facade of shopping centers or, even photographs inside the establishments that refer to urban culture.
