Question by Stuart Haden: How can I successfully market my black & white social documentary photographs?
I studied photography in Garry Winogrand’s class in Austin in 1979 and have been photographing as a street photographer for thirty years, have a website, a presence on other websites, had many exhibitions, received many favourable comments but few sales. What is the best way to reach the niche market of fine art social documentary photograph collectors in the USA in particular and the world at large?

You are in a tough market. Usually your genre of image do not reach any popularity until fifty or sixty years after the fact. I would think you could self-publish a book, but then again, you will have to market it. Your question indicates to me you have no rep.
I would think with your skills you could connect with either a writer (magazine or newspaper) or find a political action group who can use your images to press their agendas
