Welcome to GritStreet Journal!GritStreet Photography is a high-contrast, high-grain, B&W style of documentary street photography that seeks to invoke an emotional, intellectual, social, or political response from the viewer. GritStreet is a mixture of documentary photography, photojournalism, and street photography. Unlike most pure street photography - which most often has no particular objective - GritStreet has deliberate psychological, social, historical, and political intentions. --- The GritStreet Tradition --- Streetwise - Street Photography and the 1960s
