    Introduction

    I had the pleasure of participating in the PhoS2017 Street Photography Days – Athens Street Photography Festival last weekend as a lecturer and as a member of one of the parties (Streethunters.net) that organised the event together with iFocus, BULBphotos Collective and the SCP community. Phos is the Greek word for “Light“.

    PhoSAthens (#PhoSAthens), as we like calling it for short, is the first and only free street photography colloquium in Greece, made by street photographers for street photographers. You can find more information about the festival in our official PhoSAthens press release.

    I had high expectations for the festival, and I’m delighted to say they were more than surpassed! I enjoyed myself immensely and from what I heard, everyone that attended and participated really liked the experience.

    Inside Marcelo de Coghlan’s Camera bag! (Bag No140)

    Hello Street Hunters!
    My name is Marcelo de Coghlan, I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am not a professional photographer, my professional work is dentist. I love the portraits and the street photography. The street photography is very difficult, but the best way to learn is carry the camera and walk. I walk to work, with camera ever ready. Sorry for my English, I am learning.
    Best regards!
    Marcelo

    Inside Alexandros Koukoulis’ Camera bag! (Bag No139)

    Hello every one,
    My name is Alexandros from Chios Greece. I started my journey in photography in 2014, very soon I discovered that I like shooting strange people in their environment. Firstly I was shooting with Nikon but now I’m a Fuji lover since I mostly shoot street and their size helps that kind of photography. I also enjoying manual focus lens more because it lets me shoot faster at least at daytime street shooting and I like more their character.

    October Nominees for Shadows Telling A Story

    Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

    The tenth Monthly Theme Contest photos for 2017 have been submitted and we have made our choices. Please keep in mind that the process of choosing a photo from the October 2017 Street Photography Contest Submissions was quite hard!

    But let’s take a look at all the photos that were submitted and accepted in this Monthly Theme Contest.

    ATTENTION: This time round we had a lot of submissions again! Many good photos had to stay out because we like keeping our list short at around 30 images. So photos that didn’t meet the Theme or the Editors criteria were not chosen to be in the shortlist. They have been disqualified or removed. If your pic isn’t in the shortlist, don’t get discouraged. Try again next month!

    At this moment I would like to thank each and every participant for submitting their photograph. We have a great collection of photos with “Shadows telling a story” to show you! This time we had 30 valid submissions which can all be seen below.
