Taking It to the Streets @ MMFA

The “Taking It to the Streets” exhibit will be open at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts until September 18. According to the exhibit’s description:

Trying to capture everyday life, street photographers find the beautiful, the poignant, and the poetic in the mundane. Giving life to our stories, these particular artists are witnesses, catching a moment as it unfolds and saving it for posterity. A practice dating back to the origins of photography itself, street photography epitomizes those photographers who take images in public places (often, but not always candidly) capturing their subjects in the midst of their daily business or documenting a place imbued with the presence of people even in their absence.

The museum opens to the public Tuesday through Saturday at 10 AM, and on Sunday at noon. For more information, visit their website.
