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!
What started with an idea for a zine, has become a book. The Street Photographers Foundation published the ‘Street Photographers Book’ with the main question: Why Street Photography?
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.
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?
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.
Our next interview is with David Gibson, photographer based in Kent in the UK and author of several books on (street) photography, such as the ‘The Street Photographer’s Manual’ and ‘100 Great Street Photographs’. Gibson is also a member of the UP Photographers collective (formerly iN-PUBLiC). We talk about his evolution as a photographer, the difference between writing about and taking photographs, the influence of social media and more.
Here is an overview of street photography collectives, in random order. The list will be updated regularly. If you have any suggestions, feel free to send them in.
