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.
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.
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.
Founded in 2017 by Marco Savarese, Eyeshot started off as a magazine, well-edited and beautifully printed, shipped worldwide. But Marco has bigger plans for Eyeshot and one of them is becoming reality: being the first independent street photography book publisher. Read about the process, the challenges, choices of photographers and further dreams for Eyeshot Magazine.
In these times, when we spend much more time at home, deliberately or not, we often have more time to revisit our existing work and sometimes even to reinvent it. Some photographers start to edit series, combine old and new work. Others recreate their images by using collage or mix photography with another art form like painting. Spanish photographer Antonio García reacts to the current view of many cities by erasing all humans and animals from his images. The result is an eerie look into the old and the possibly new world.
100streetphotographsforpesaro is an initiative by photographer Alessandro Rocchi and the municipality of Pesaro in Northern Italy. Photographers can donate a print for 100 euro, raising money for the Marche Nord hospital in Pesaro.
