Featured Street Photo by Peter Kool

Peter Kool is one of my all time favourite contemporary street photographers. His style is surreal and he pays great attention to detail. What I like about his photographs is that you need to ‘decode’ them to get them. Some are easier to understand than others and can be analysed in split seconds, but others take a little bit more time and those are the ones that I enjoy look at the most.

Peter was born on the 30th January in 1953 in the Netherlands. Since 1973 he has been living in Belgium where he still resides today. He studied photography at the Academy of Fine Arts at Sint-Niklaas Belgium from 1980 to 1985. Even though he studied photography he didn’t dedicate his life to it until a few years ago, but since then he hasn’t lost focus.

Peter Kool is a member of the iN-PUBLiC Street Photography collective, the first ever street photography collective. In the past we have featured other members of iN-PUBLiC such as Matt Stuart, Blake Andrews, Maciej Dakowicz, Mark Powell, Narelle Autio and Trent Parke. You should surely visit his bio page on In-Public and give it a read.

Inside Yannis Fragakis’ Camera bag! (Bag No154)

Hello Street Hunters!

My name is Yannis and i am from Rethymno – Greece. I love all kinds of photography, but specially street portrait photography. I shoot both digital and analog and lately i have discovered a recipe mix, combining digital body with analog optics. This is a great combo for shooting portraits with the ease of digital equipment, but also feeling the pleasure of slowing down, experiencing the calmness that analog photography can give.

Roza Vulf Floating World exhibition

From the 10th of April until the 10th of May, Monday 14.30 – 19.30, Tuesday – Saturday 10.30 – 19.30 Roza Vulf’s “Floating World” exhibition will be on display at Leica Store Roma at Via dei Due Macelli 57.

Roza is originally from Vilnius, Lithuania. After spending most of her adult life in her country, she moved to Leipzig, Germany and finally to Rome, Italy, where she still resides now.

She is a self taught street photographer so the translation of her perception of the immediate environment is what she captures, interested in moments seen on the street, the underground or the beach. All her characters have a certain style that makes the viewer understand that Roza feels at home operating in a documentary way.

The Floating World exhibition takes its roots from the 17th century Japanese Art called Ukyio. It was originally translated to mean ‘sad world’, but with the evolution of language, literature and the usage of the term itself, the most recent translation of Ukiyo-e pertains to the phrase ‘floating world’ or fleeting pictures of the world.

Inside John Hughes’ Camera bag! (Bag No153)

I’m John Hughes a street photographer based in the UK, I spend most of my time shooting in Cambridge and London. I can’t believe I’ve never sent my whats in my bag to Streethunters.net,
First, we’ll start with my camera bag this had to be lightweight and small, yet still big enough to carry what I needed. I decided on the Billingham Hadley Small (Khaki / Tan). I love this bag it’s lightweight, waterproof and it doesn’t look like a camera bag, perfect for the streets of London, it never gets noticed. The bonus for me is that it never gets in the way and most of the time I forget I’m carrying it. I carry my:

Featured Street Photo by Julie Hrudova

Julie Hrudova is a Czech photographer from Prague who is currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Currently she works as a photo editor for RTL news. She has a BA in Media & Culture and a MA in Film & Photographic Studies. Her work has been published in various magazines and websites and exhibited all around the world. Julie has also won the 2017 EyeEm Street Photography award and has competed in quite a few competitions. In my opinion her work leans towards the surreal and as you all know, I really like surreal street photography so naturally her photographs grabbed my interest.

Another thing that was of interest to me is the project Julie has started on Instagram, called StreetRepeat. StreetRepeat is an Instagram account curated by her that basically is dedicated to similarities in street photography. According to Julie, in street photography one can recognise patterns within the genre. She has been collecting these similarities for a while now. About a week ago when we got in touch she shared some info with me about the project. To quote her she said

“I’m not judgemental about the repetition, I’m trying to post photos that are interesting on their own, but also work well within a certain theme. Each time I post three images by different photographers, with one mutual theme.”

Check out StreetRepeat for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below.
