“From The Hip”

Photos of Life at Street Level

Salem Arts Association presents “From The Hip”, a Photography exhibition of images from the street. The streets are filled with stories. We’re challenging photographers to present the candid stories they find and capture at street level, showing us that moment of truth!

Hip shooting, which was named after gun fighting, is a photographic style described as shooting photographs from waist level without using the viewfinder of the camera to centralize the subject. Photographers have been creating “Street Photography” for decades “shooting from the hip”. It’s an art form best known from photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004), Garry Winogrand (1928–1984), Vivian Maier (1926-2009), Robert Doisneau (1912-1994), Walker Evans (1903-1975), and others.

Opening Reception: Friday, August 4, 2017, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Exhibition Dates: August 4 – September 24, 2017

Gallery Hours are every Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m.
