25 Winners & Finalists Of LensCulture 2021 Street Photography Awards

1st Place Series: Reflections Inside the Seoul Metro by Argus Paul Estabrook

Here are the winners and finalists of the LensCulture 2021 Street Photography Awards.

On the heels of a global pandemic, with cities around the world reopening little by little, we wondered what the 2021 Street Photography Awards would show us. Would images be celebratory, with photographers reveling in the closeness of passersby after more than a year of solitude? Or would they remain eerily quiet and uncertain?

What we discovered was a wide world caught somewhere between before and after Covid-19. This year’s competition brought us hundreds of entries, revealing the hustle and bustle of daily life proceeding as it once did, but in new, often socially distanced spaces. And we were reminded that photographers express themselves with metaphors and emotions, as much as they do with the street scenes unfolding around them.

From Seoul to Sydney, Rio to Manhattan, Istanbul to Yangoon City — talented photographers showed us their daily habitats captured brilliantly with light, shadow, color, drama, serendipity, and often a sense of humor.
