HP has launched the Street Photography online gallery as venue for professional photographers to exhibit their work at the Recontres dâ€™Arles photography festival in July 2007. Photographers are invited to join and post their street photos at www.hypegallery.com.
They can also join the contest to have their images displayed at Arles, where they will be reproduced professionally on an HP Z-series printer. The best 30 photos, to be selected by Magnum President Stuart Franklin, will be displayed at Arles.
The gallery works in a similar way to the HYPE galleries through which thousands of participants have exhibited their work online and seen them printed to a professional standard on HP Z-series printers in capital cities across the world including London, Berlin, Paris and Singapore.
