Shot – Street Photography. This is a selection of twenty 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.
Photographer: Gustavo Rosas
Bio: I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, on May 15, 1985. My first approach to photography may have been through film, since I was a kid I liked to watch movies and since then I have been curious about the images, their construction and their power to communicate emotions.
In 2017 I finished my degree in Visual and Plastic Arts at the National School of Fine Arts (IENBA) and I am currently working as a photographer and freelance graphic designer.
Throughout these years I have developed a special interest in street photography and the possibility of portraying and documenting life on the streets spontaneously.
