Etymologically, A street is a public thoroughfare in a built environment. It is a public parcel of land adjoining buildings in an urban context, on which people may freely assemble, interact, and move about. A street can be as simple as a level patch of dirt but is more often paved with a hard, durable surface such as tarmac, concrete, cobblestone, or brick.
Originally, the word street simply meant a paved road (Latin: via strata). But it is where the major part of urban life happens and humans connect. A street is a place for stories and exchanges. It is where time changes its form. It is the public realm in a city full of private residences.
Streets contribute formally and informally a lot to how a city functions. The brief/theme of the challenge to make a picture story of the streets using not more than 8 images – along with a concept note.
