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.
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.
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.
I’m thrilled to contribute to the latest issue of Eyeshot Magazine as a guest editor, along with Matt Stuart, Katarzyna Kubiak, Shin Noguchi and Vineet Vohra. Each photographer was asked to select twenty images according to the theme STREET JUNGLE. It’s the first guest-edited issue of Eyeshot, and it’s also a limited edition run of 400 copies each signed by the founder Marco Savarese.
As an account about repetitions we are very fond of other theme-based accounts on Instagram. This week we are doing a takeover at Peoplesleepingintheworld and therefore we’ve curated a selection of our favourite Sleeping People photographs to date.
This week the Art on a Postcard organisation holds an exhibition of Street Photography and Urban Contemporary Art at the Old Spittalfields Market in London. Around 600 postcard sized photographs and artworks are up for auction, anonymously, raising money for the Hepatitis C Trust.
