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.
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 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.
This month one of the leading Dutch weekly magazines, Volkskrant Magazine, published two spreads about StreetRepeat with lots and lots of images.
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?
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.
