Some of the best street photography

We've assembled the Streetplay Galleries to present the work of professional artists who have documented the experience of play all over the world. Over the years, we've assembled some stunning exhibitions.

In this gallery, East River Raft, Jerry Dantzic presents this reflection, in his own pictures and words, of a childhood spent next to New York's East River. This is a real treat that we're sure you'll enjoy.
