You’re joining us for the latest edition of ‘This Week on Streethunters.net’, our Sunday summary of the past week’s events and activity on the Streethunters.net street photography blog website and social media channels. If you fancy heading even further back, you can visit the This Week category page of the website and browse through summaries from the previous weeks.
There was no camera bag for us to share with you this week as we have completely depleted our stocks! So, if you have a camera bag you’d like us and all our readers to take a look at, please send it to us! In the absence of a camera bag, we chose to launch the week with a fantastic Throwback Tuesday post from our archives, a Hangouts interview with none other than Rinzi Ruiz, conducted by former Street Hunter Casper Macindoe. You are probably already familiar with Rinzi Ruiz, as he is one of the most influential street photographers in the world, and we have also analysed his photo ”LA” in our featured street photo series. In his far-reaching Hangout interview, Rinzi discusses the details of his street photography technique and editing processes. If you missed the interview back in 2014 make sure you check it out now!
Check out this lovely shot by László-Tibor Olah which was chosen as our Streethunters.net Facebook Group Cover Photo for this week. There’s some truly astonishing symmetry happening in diagonal corners of the frame in this photo, with a nice dose of the surreal thrown in for good measure too. This is a powerful and intriguing photo that really rewards careful consideration. Great work László!
This week’s feature post has been some months in the making and very hotly anticipated – the launch of a brand new street hunt video! And we celebrated reaching the milestone street hunt number 25 by showing you the footage from one of this summer’s hottest street photography events – the fantastic 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting in London, sponsored by COSYSPEED! If you are a fan of the street hunt videos you will really not want to miss this one, which not only features a street hunt route from Waterloo Station to Borough Market to Brick Lane and Hackney, but actually ends at the London Street Photography Festival venue and a meeting with some of the world’s top current street photography talents. So don’t miss it!
On Saturday it was time for some weekly housekeeping, which involved the careful curation of the Streethunters.net Flickr Group Photo Pool with lots of new street photos added. We like to remind you of this group a lot because we’re particularly proud of it – in the photo pool here you will find some of the very best examples of contemporary street photography anywhere in the world right now – and all of them created and submitted by Flickr users and Streethunters.net readers. Give it a browse – you won’t regret it!
We rounded off the week with an update to our huge list of women street photographers you should follow on the web. We added a load of new names to the roll call of top female street photographers online, and the list now stands at a whopping 75 names. Make sure you give it a look in order to discover the work of some superb lady street photographers from around the world. If there are any great female street photographers you know who ought to be on the list make sure you let us know!
And with that, we’ll draw the shutters down on another week at Streethunters.net.
