Street Photographers 2016

A Crowdsourced List Of Street Photographers

Two weeks ago we asked for your help to find the 20 most influential contemporary Street Photographers and the feedback we received was just fantastic. We are very grateful for your participation. You recommended many Street Photographers out of which a list of 115 names was finally made. Thank you!

You Recommended And You Voted

A week ago, we asked you dear Readers to do one more thing for us and that was to vote for your most influential Street Photographer out of the list of 115. You voted 20,357 times!

Thank you!

It is understandable that each one of you is influenced by different Street Photographers for different reasons and that is what makes this vote even more interesting. Influences play an important role in the way an artist perceives the world and his/her art, so it is only logical that each one of us has different sources of inspiration, making our perception of what we consider “an influence” unique. What is important is that you all helped us with your vote to find who are the 20 most influential Street Photographers at this time according to you.

One of the Street Photographers on this list, Thomas Leuthard, explained this nicely in his post when he shared the link to the poll on his facebook page. He said:

“Make your personal suggestion, who is the most influential street photographer for you. Not the best, not the most famous, not the coolest, the one who influences you…”

So here they are:

    • People submitted their personal favourites. I am sure they didn’t think of being gender specific at the time of submission, but instead they sent in the photographers that influence them on a personal level. So since this is a matter of personal preference, I don’t think that we need to look for any issue or reason behind their choices. When it comes to “personal choice” it is about who each reader prefers. Nothing more.

  1. That’s a pretty good round-up.
    Great to see Trent Parke from Australia on the list. He has shot some iconic street scenes around Australia, on film, and long before it was the thing to do.
