Street photography fascinates with its ability to change one's perception of reality. Its artists manage to show unnoticed details in everyday things, people and situations. Whether it's something funny, unexpected or controversial, all of the photographs are about us and the (undiscovered) world we live in. 

With that being said, we want to celebrate talented street photographers by sharing their works as published by The Decisive Moments Magazine (TDM) Awards 2021. The Jury team of two, Vineet Cohra and F. Dilek Uyar, has chosen 34 winners and finalists whose works are being showcased on the TDM website.

Scroll down for the impressive photographs and upvote your favorite ones!

Paul Kessel was announced as the winner of The Decisive Moments Magazine Awards 2021 with his amusing photograph depicting people in Mercer Street, Soho. In one of his interviews, the photographer shared that originally, he was interested in portrait photography but later on discovered street photography and became "immersed in it".

"Shooting street scenes is like a sport and they are mostly candid. In a few instances, people seemed to be aware of my presence", Paul shared on his website.

Second place was given to Babak Kanaani. He's a Tehran-based artist who began his career as a photographer in 2005. However, it was only in 2016 that the artist started focusing on street photography. The winning image was shot in the streets of Iran.

Third place went to Joseph-Philippe Bevillard, a talented photographer based in Ireland. As stated on his website, the artist took up photography during his senior year at a private school in Massachusetts. "It was in 1990 that Joseph-Philippe developed a style for his square B&W portraits of people he met in the nightclubs and on the street." Later on, the artist started a new project, photographing the Irish Travellers.

This looks to be a professional photo shoot not really street photography.
