The renowned UP Collective just opened its door for two new members: Melissa O’Shaughnessy and Alison McCauley. Alison and Melissa are the veteran collective’s first new recruits since its reinvention as UP (Un-Public) earlier this year. Russian photographer Igor Mukhin was the last new addition, in May 2018, to the UP family which now counts 25 members among its ranks. Now let’s introduce Alison and Melissa, we’ve made a selection of their work.
The second edition of the Italian Street Photo Festival took place last weekend, and it was once again a successful event. Its organisers succeeded in creating a warm atmosphere, almost as if it was a big family that comes together once a year. We share some memories in photos.
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.
PhoS is a series of photography events happening in the Balkans, and the next edition will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria, from 9-12 May. The festival has just announced its finalists.
The winners of World Press Photo 2018 were announced in Amsterdam this weekend. A lot of the nominated and winning photographers joined the World Press Photo Festival to present their work and exchange views with editors, jurors and others from the industry during panel talks. They passionately discussed important themes such as the ‘politics of representation’ or ‘the impact of a story on an individual’. Here is our selection of the winning images.
The new issue of the Eyeshot street photography magazine is here and its theme is Flashgun. It approaches the idea of the flash in a literal way but also in a more philosophical manner: “A flash is as fast as a New York minute, the blink of an eye, a heartbeat, an instant, a jiffy, or a split second.”
Last Friday the ‘Eyewitness in Brussels’ exhibition opened in the Jewish Museum of Belgium, showing 30 images by 21 finalists. Photographers were asked to submit work relating to diversity in Brussels, inequality, and the social, cultural and economic relations between different groups. This is also connected to the retrospective exhibition of Magnum’s Leonard Freed, running from October 2018 until March 2019.
As street photography becomes more popular many websites focus solely on the genre by publishing interviews, news and features on street photographers. We have put together our own list of websites. They are in random order and awaiting regular updates. So if you have suggestions please get in touch.
Given that Instagram galleries are limited to ten images, Facebook continues to be an invaluable resource for sharing larger photography selections. We’ve put together a list of some showcase pages. These are in a random order and will be updated regularly. If you have a suggestion, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
The exhibition is a collaborative project between the Brussels Street Photography Festival and the Jewish Museum of Belgium. An open call for submission was issued last year and now the participating photographers are announced. Their images will be shown in the Jewish Museum alongside the work of Magnum photographer Leonard Freed.
