Until 2019 I was doing street photography in my free time as my personal work. Every now and then I sold a print or participated in an exhibition, but I was never really on a deadline. That changed in the beginning of 2020, when I took on a weekly street photography section in Dutch newspaper Het Parool.
We’ve lost a beautiful and talented soul, Elisa Tomaselli. A huge loss for everyone who knew her and was close to her, as well as the (street) photography community.
In the new series called Self-Repeat I focus on self-repetition by individual photographers. It’s something we all come across in the proces of shaping our personal signature in photography. I’ve asked the photographers about two similar images that they took at different points in time, to learn why they recreated the same type of image and what it can tell us about their work in general.
2019 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 the year.
The second Women Street Photographers exhibition in New York is currently on show. Works by 95 female photographers from all around the world are on display at El Barrio’s Artspace PS109, all organised and curated by photographer Gulnara Samoilova.
A few months ago Grant Scott, the founder of United Nations of Photography, invited me make a short recording of ‘what photography means to me’. Quite a challenge as, like most people, I’m scared of listening back to recordings of myself.
Formed out of a private Facebook group, the Little Box Collective is the newest large collective with 18 members from all around the world. How do they differ from the existing collectives? And what does it mean for a photographer to be part of a collective?
We are happy to have Bas Losekoot, Dutch artist and photographer, on board for this interview. Losekoot lives and works in Amsterdam, but travels around the world to photograph the streets of megacities like New York, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Lagos for his project Out of Place. As he is researching human behaviour in public space, we discuss the issue of personal space, the choreography of people in an urban environment, the position of the photographer and Losekoot’s own state of mind when he photographs others.
It’s almost October which means that the Brussels Street Photography Festival is around the corner. The 4th edition of BSPF, taking place October 4-6, is organised by photographer Dani Oshi, and he and the team do an outstanding job exhibiting great work in multiple locations across the city, and putting on talks and discussions with interesting figures from the street and documentary genre.
There’s a new kid on the block on the international street photography festival calendar: AUSSIE STREET 2019. The first international edition will run from September 20-22 in Sydney.
