99 Candid Captures

From Odd Future Images to Candid NBA Player Shoots

— June 7, 2011 — Fashion
Candid photographs are undoubtedly my favorite style of photographs to see. There's a certain authenticity in candid photographs that you don't get in any other kind photography. While other editorials and shoots feature highly made-up models positioned in a series of standard poses, these images give you an alternate and more realistic perspective.

This collection of candid photographs features both street shots of unknowns as well as shots of famous celebrities. While some of these candid photographs were taken by professional photographers, they were still deliberately shot in a way that reflects the understated authenticity of truly candid photographs.

Sit back, relax and begin your exploration into some of the best and realest photography works on the Internet.
