Streetfoto San Francisco 2017 Cover

StreetFoto San Francisco has returned for its second annual festival, and 2017’s installment is shaping up to be even more impressive than the inaugural event! Late spring is going to get hot in the Bay Area!

Billed as an international event dedicated entirely to the art of street photography, StreetFoto San Francisco will surely deliver on that promise with contests, portfolio reviews, workshops, lectures, photowalks and exhibitions. Better yet is the list of great street photographers hosting some of the events: Bruce Gilden, Jesse Marlow, Aaron Berger, Jack Simon, and Vineet Vohra. And, some of these greats will be judging the contests along with David Gibson, Maciej Dakowicz, Graciela Magnoni, Nick Turpin, Siri Thompson, Alexander Petrosyan, Judy Walgren, Joe Aguirre and more to be announced!

Months of Photography Paphos Public Art 2017

You may recall us talking about the Months Of Photography Paphos programs here last year. Well the highly interactive, educational and successful event is back for another run in 2017! The Public Art call for entries was announced here just a few weeks ago, but the official program is now in our hands and it is packed with another schedule of great activities and events! And, once again, all of them are at a low cost or free!

The purpose of the program is to offer quality events around the photographic art for three months and establish itself as an international photography festival comparable with others. MoPP says it’s specific objectives are to:

  • offer to the public of Cyprus quality events about photography,
  • provide an opportunity for Cypriots and other photographers to be trained,
  • build a communication and collaboration platform for Cypriot photographers with their colleagues abroad and between cultural operators,
  • accommodate new trends in artistic photography,
  • and to promote the art of photography.

Boogie ‘Blow Your Mind’ Exhibition in Naples cover

Read almost anything on the photographer Boogie and you’ll get the impression that he is one very brave and badass photographer. That’s because he is, in fact, just that. And all the press and praise… it’s justified. We here at StreetHunters know. His latest book, ‘A Wah Do Dem’ (Drago, 2016) was reviewed here and he was also featured in the Under The Influence series). Boogie was also on our inaugural list of most influential active street photographers. But all the words written do not really do Boogie’s work justice. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. His work does all the talking.

David Gleave's

Manchester-based photographer David Gleave cites among his influences Robert Frank, Robert Capa, Eugene Smith, Bruce Davidson, Garry Winogrand, William Eggleston, William Klein and Mary Ellen Mark. All legends. And, gauging from the sample images of his book, In The City, Gleave is doing work that they just might approve of.

Gleave, who holds a Licentiateship distinction from The Royal Photographic Society, has collated a number of striking images for his debut publication, In The City. Just like the title implies, Gleave says his primary theme is the characters and scenes found at the heart of our larger urban communities. Images of Manchester comprise over half the impressions in his new book, and the same echoes resonate from other cities captured exclusively in mono, including London and New York in particular.

Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

As I have mentioned in the previous workshops post I wrote a few months ago, I really enjoy shooting with flash because I like the surreal results that come from this type of street photography. Flash Street Photography excites me and I want to share this excitement with you by teaching you about this style of shooting at my Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens.

It has now been 3 years since I started shooting Flash Street Photography and to my surprise I have found out that most people don’t really care about the flash. Some even give me the feeling that they don’t have any problem at all with Flash Street Photography. I think the reason for this is the upfront style of a flash shot that makes it a more sincere action that let’s say when one is lurking in the shadows capturing sly shots and I think that is how people see it. What I mean is there is nothing sneaky about a flash shot. It is brutally honest. There is no doubt about what the street photographer is doing. This gives me even more incentive to keep on trying this style of street photography and now I feel that I know enough to share my experiences with you.
