The oldest and probably the most active group in Poland. Founded in 2006 they have already published two albums and organized three exhibitions.
In addition, in 2008 three of KGF members started to work on e-magazine about documentary photography and photojurnalism – Fotoindex.
Lately Kolektyw KGF helped to organize WorkshopX.
In 2008 they started their website and blog, which in reality is the biggest collection of Polish street photographers. At the moment one can find there 41 presentations of 36 authors. From time to time they also publish an interesting interview or essay on street photography, photojurnalism or documentary photography. A member of Snaps – Mariusz Forecki – publishes an e-magazine 5klatek, which also has its own application on AppStore.
The youngest of the list, but at the same time the one that gets recognition the fastest. It was founded in 2011 and at the beginning of 2012 they have already had their first exhibition in Leica Gallery in Warsaw. They publish contemporary photographs, but they also try to remember the Pioneers of the genre in Poland. They have their own group on Flickr, where you can send your own photos
Probably the least active of all groups mentioned here. They mainly publish their photographs on their own blog, which was created in 2009 and has been updated ever since.
Pentax.org.pl – Fotografia uliczna
The last but not least place you should visit when you look for information on Polish street photography is a message board on pentax.org.pl and its famous topic Fotografia uliczna (Street Photography). It is not a formalized group as the other four are, but you can find there a lot of information and plenty great (and not so great) photographs. On over 600 pages you can read about almost every possible aspect of street photography you can imagine.
