Best street photography series

Photography is about telling stories, and long-term projects are what keep many of us going. This contest invited street photographers to submit a series of photographs that share a common theme or narrative. Much of what we consider to be the street photography canon arises from projects like this.

Best mobile street photo

Chase Jarvis once famously said, “The best camera is the one you have with you.” These photos were all captured by phones or tablets. The ubiquity and ever-increasing image quality of camera phones makes them attractive tools for street photographers. Mobile photography has brought legions of new artists into the fold, and even dedicated Leica shooters are branching out and making interesting work with their phones.
