Life Framer – Street Life

For those of you whom might not know… AINT–BAD is excited to share the juried selections from LIFE FRAMERS past call for entry themed around – “Street Life”!

Life Framer is a photography award and community that sources and showcases outstanding photography from amateur to established artists.

– Ralph Wilson / Co-Founder Life Framer

AINT–BAD, similar but different to Life Framer, we both aim to bring exposure to talented photographers from all over the world.


Street Life

From Los Angeles to Lagos; a stranger in a foreign land to a habitual stroll in the village you’ve always known. From the pulsing arteries of a bustling metropolis, to the quiet solitude of its empty backstreets. Glistening glass and steel, against crumbling brickwork and eroded stone.

The photography competition was judged by Bruce Gilden. Gilden is a one-of-a-kind, celebrated globally for his unique take on street photography and candid close-ups. He is a Guggenheim Fellow, has been a member of Magnum Photo Agency since 1998, and is the subject of the film Misery Loves Company: The Life and Death of Bruce Gilden.

Below are the results from this past May call for entry around the theme – “Street Life”!
