Best Street Photography of 2005

PPS offers striking images of great places (and a few not-so-great) from around the world. [Includes photos.]

In 30 years of work on the frontlines of communities around the world, PPS has depended on photographs as an essential tool for helping people think creatively about the possibilities of a particular place. We learned this tactic from PPS's mentor, William H. Whyte, who spent years documenting New York life on film as part of his pioneering work on how people use public spaces. PPS staffers tote a camera almost everywhere they go--including vacations and lunchtime strolls to the deli--keeping an eye out for scenes that best illustrate what makes places succeed or fail.

...Project for Public Spaces has amassed more than a half-million photos from our explorations through back alleys, piazzas, Main Streets, souks, town squares, walled cities, foodhalls, train stations, strip malls and almost everywhere else."
