Shot – Street Photography. This is a selection of twelve photos that I took in the streets of my city, Montevideo (Uruguay), and are part of a project named “Shot”.
“Shot” is a street photography project created by Gonzalo Gómez and Gustavo Rosas in 2013. We are curious photographers about what happens in the streets of Montevideo and walk quietly observing gestures, shapes, connections, something unpredictable in common places. We approach our subjects without using the zoom, to be in tune with life. For us, street photography is a form of aesthetic expression and a record of an age.
The uniqueness of a story over mere every day is what we pursue. It is in this sense that we consider the street as an inexhaustible source of fleeting, spontaneous and emotional situations. The shape, light, and content should be mutually supportive.

Bio: I’m from Uruguay. My passion is taking shots in the streets, walking a lot and being in a short distance from my subjects. For me, street photography is a form of aesthetic expression and communication of gestures, situations, emotions, something unpredictable in common places. Life in the streets means there are lots of stories to tell.
