    Street Photography Now is an art project done in collaboration with artist Dedeia Rocha. It’s a fake-spy-book for taking pictures without being noticed.

    The typeface Fit by David Jonathan Ross is just perfect for a fully typographic cover. The fact that it is not immediately legible helps preserve the subliminal irony contained in the title. It was used to attract the attention of passersby and hopefully get a good shot of them. Also, its avenue-like lines and curves fit perfectly with the street environment (do forgive me, it’s hard to avoid puns with this typeface’s name).

    Street Photography Now is also the title of a great book by Sophie Howarth. This project was developed with no commercial intentions and therefore no copyright infringement intended.
