This strange year is coming to an end and since StreetRepeat is all about trends, it’s time to look back at the account’s most popular images and themes of 2020.
For this festival I was part of the jury. Over the weekend we went through more than 2000 images and had to narrow it down to a certain amount of finalists. This image was one of the photos that stood out and I’m happy to see it winning the first place in the Singles Category. I was curious about the story behind this photo so I’ve asked the photographer, Max Sturgeon, to tell us more.
The Miami Street Photography Festival has announced its winners earlier this month. I also took a look at the finalist images and I’ve made a selection here with some words about why I like these pictures.
Street photography festivals are a great way to meet the community, given the fact that street photographers often work alone. It’s a perfect excuse to get together, discuss, see photography on the walls, listen to talks and drink beer.
Quite a few street photography competitions, festivals and open calls coming up in the next few weeks. The list will be updated. If you have a suggestion, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
What started with an idea for a zine, has become a book. The Street Photographers Foundation published the ‘Street Photographers Book’ with the main question: Why Street Photography?
Asking permission or not, it’s a dilemma in street photography. I never used to ask people if it was ok to photograph them. Moreover, I almost didn’t make any contact. When people would confront me, I’d say that I’m doing a completely legal thing. My approach has changed a bit in the last few months.
