World Street Photography is an independent nonprofit organization and community created for street photographers by the non-profit Kujaja organisation. World Street Photography was founded in February 2014 by Gido Carper with the intention of giving street photographers a community and a public arena to show their street photography. Profit from its photobooks is given to charitable organizations.
