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.

I’ve recently published my first photo book called Chasing Amsterdam, a collection of street photos that I took for a Dutch newspaper’s weekly ‘City Life’ column between 2020 and 2021. As I’ve learned much from this process I’d like to share my experience in 15 steps.
As this year is coming to an end, I’ve collected some books that were published in or around 2021.
As you might know I have a thing for repetitions and similarities. Therefore I like to follow other Instagram accounts that focus on patterns of our visual culture. Here are a few.
You might know Russian photographer Ilya Shtutsa for his playful street photographs mostly from Saint Petersburg, with layered compositions and humour. A while ago he started to post paintings on Facebook and they immediately intrigued me. The photographic elements in the paintings are very interesting and it makes me look at Ilya’s photography in a different way. I’ve asked him to write some words about this new work.
For 1,5 year I’ve been taking weekly photos of Amsterdam for a local newspaper. I’m endlessly cycling and walking through the city to find that one scene that stands out to me. Now I’ve decided to collect the images and make a book called ‘Chasing Amsterdam’.
For some StreetRepeat themes I get surprised with the amount of variations I find or receive from others. I usually feature extra images in the stories on Instagram but as they disappear after 24 hours, I’ll post them here as well. Enjoy!
I’m happy to share a selection from recently published street photography books.
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.
