“Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930s. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer’s skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city dweller interacts with his or her environment.”

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

After a career doing both commercial and press photography, I became drawn to exploring the cities and villages of my native India, seeking out and photographing the people whose cultures and ways of life are quickly becoming lost in the contemporary, more homogenized world of today. Now based in the US I continue to expand my subject matter and am exploring the streets and people of the US. I had to change how I approach my subjects here as culturally it is quite different from India. Recently I showed my work at Agora Gallery in New York and will be showing at Photo place gallery in Vermont.

Robi is the recipient of several awards from the International Color Awards including Photographer of the Year Award and was the recipient of the 6th Annual Master Cup for his photo, Off the Ground, depicting a tribal child in (region, India) pushing a cycle rim down a village road.
