Featured Street Photo by Lionel Buffe

This time around we are featuring a photograph by Lionel Buffe. Buffe hails from Valenciennes, which is a commune in the Nord department in northern France. He shoots using a smartphone because he finds it to be a convenient and discreet camera that is always on him. All post-processing gets done on the phone. So his gear and studio fit entirely inside his pocket. 

By checking his body of work found online, I understand he is an enormous fan of the surreal and the mysterious. He enjoys playing with light, shadows and reflections in such a way that give his photos a unique feeling, a metaphoric stamp “by Buffe” one could say, a signature feel. This is the reason I chose one of his pictures for today’s feature.

Inside Julieta’s Camera bag! (Bag No181)

“Hi!! My name is Julieta.

A photographer/artist based in Santa Monica, CA. I’m self-taught with a great passion for all things photographic, beautiful light, fresh food, people from different backgrounds, and beautiful spaces and places. Travel has been a part of my lifestyle and is a direct reflection of the people, stories, and places that inspire me. I believe that keeping things simple in life and on set as I find it always produces the best results with the least stress. I also like to explore different mediums combined with my photography and give a different kind of texture to them.

In my bag I typically have:”

Introduction

A few days ago we published a post about “10+5 things a Street Photographer can do when in forced lockdown quarantine because of the COVID-19 virus“. When we were writing this post, we already knew that our lives were changing. Today, only a few days later, the global scale of the virus has dramatically altered for the worst and we are noticing more and more changes because of this.

    Introduction

    Dear Readers,

    We are living through some dark, surreal times. I am confident that by now you have undoubtedly felt the impact of the COVID-19 virus pandemic and that your lives have been affected in one way or another by this invisible threat. I wish you, your families and loved ones, good health. So, make sure to stay home and stay safe.

    Stay home and stay safe Street Hunters

    Asking Street Photographers to stay home is like asking a bird not to fly or a fish not to swim! What are we to do? Us Street Photographers are creatures of the street if anything, and being confined in an apartment, house or room could be a very, very hard thing to do! There is a possibility that some of us might even experience cabin fever, depression, anxiety, loneliness and other dark, suffocating feelings. 

    There are things however that we can do to feel better. Things to help us survive mentally while in a forced lockdown quarantine due to the COVID-19 virus. Articles with advice on how to protect your mental health are already popping up everywhere. I recommend you give them a read. Here are some useful links I discovered:

    Featured Street Photo by Simone Mantia

    Simone Mantia is an Italian Street Photographer based in Livorno, Italy. I noticed Simone’s work when he started sharing it with us in the Streethunters.net Flickr Group. After seeing a couple of shots he submitted that attracted my attention, I gave his Flickr profile a visit to see what his work is all about. I was pleasantly surprised with the photos he has in his collection. So I chose one to share it with all of you tonight. I don’t have more information about Simone. I googled him, but only found submissions to contests and his Flickr and Facebook page (links below), so I can’t provide you with more insight on this talented street photographer.

    For all of you that haven’t visited our group on Flickr, give it a look, I am sure you will get quite inspired by what you will see there.

    3 days ago, something tragic happened.

    Street photographer Elisa Tomaselli died. Her passing sent a shockwave through the street photography community that responded in turn with a flood of comments and reactions. This tragedy reminded all of us that behind the little avatars, comments and likes we interact with on our computers, phones and tablets there are actual, real live people.

    Introduction

    2020 is upon us and so is a new promising decade! The Street Photography scene has changed so much within the last 10 years! I can’t even begin to imagine what it will look like in yet another 10, in 2030. If you think about it, digital street photography now dominates in comparison to 10 years ago when film street photography was still the way to go for decent imagery, and colour street photography seems to be the new standard, leaving black and white behind (not too far behind but still). Everyday more and more talented Street Photographers share their work from all around the world, unwillingly shaping the evolving street photography trends that constantly transform the genre, keeping it always interesting and fresh.

    What this post is about?

    The purpose of today’s post is to share with you 20 Street Photographers that are worth looking into in 2020.

    This list is completely personal. I have no intention of discriminating, of setting any standards, or of imposing my opinion. This is just a list of who I think you should consider following in 2020. You don’t have to agree dear readers, so if you want to share your top20 or open a discussion, please feel free to do so by sharing names and links of Street Photographers you think are worth looking at in the comments.

    Just a friendly note to all that think this is a great way for self promoting themselves, I will not share vanity comments 🙂 .

    Inside Teemu Jarvinen’s Camera bag! (Bag No181)

    “Hi Streethunters!

    My name is Teemu Jarvinen, I do mostly nighttime street photography around Asia. I was born in Finland, but started traveling as a digital nomad in 2014. I took up photography as a hobby in 2015 after I bought my first camera, and slowly over the years grew more and more obsessed with it.

    Nowadays I love shooting street photography at night, so I’ve found the Sony a7iii and a few prime lenses to be a great set of equipment for this purpose. Due to my lifestyle as a constant traveler, mirrorless also saves me lots of weight and luggage space, so this camera is ideal for me.
