Hi Streethunters,

My name is Pavlos , I am 44 years old photo enthusiast from Greece.
I love practicing Street Photography whenever I have the time, in the streets of Athens as a meditation process to calm from my everyday job.
I mainly use my 23mm lens for street but always keep the 56mm lens in my bag for occasional portrait opportunities plus my dads film camera loaded with B&W film.

Hi Streethunters,

My name is Alex. I am 22 and I was born in France but I live in Montreal for a while. I work in animation features but I want to become a professional photographer. I love street photography, I practice every day. I focus on the atmosphere and storytelling. I like to feel free in my movements, therefore I have a minimalist bag.

I appreciate having less equipment and only one lens. It allows you to really know your tools and not ask yourself any more questions. I don’t have a computer anymore. Editing photos on IpadPro is really efficient, light and simple. Storage is automatic with iCloud.

Featured Street Photo by Dana Moica

Dana Moica is a talented Romanian photographer originally from Timisoara who currently lives in Dragsina.

I met Dana when I was in Bucharest a couple of weeks ago. I was intrigued by her work which was on display in the exhibition of the Phos Bucharest Street Photography Days event. If I remember correctly she had 3 photos exhibited and they were all amazing, however one photo captured my attention the most and that is the one I have chosen to feature today, but more on that later.

Dana is a photographer who loves people. She doesn’t believe in photographic classifications. She photographs whatever captures her attention but as it so happens, people are what attract her the most. She will photograph the subjects that interest her in the street, in the mountains, by the sea, during winter and during summer, without limiting herself to a particular style. That is what I like about her work. It is free and diverse.

Inside Raul Barroso’s Camera bag! (Bag No155)

Hi Streethunters, I’m Raúl from Madrid, Spain.

Love the street photography in the way it allow me to explore the outside world as well as my inner world. I shot on colour and look for interesting details and colour or shape matchings. I usually listen music while I’m shooting because it help me to get in the zone and self confident. Lately I’m shooting on film to avoid my habit of watching the screen constantly. Now I’m hooked on its simplicity and its atmosphere.

I share my photographic adventures with my colleagues in La Calle es Nuestra a collective of Spanish Street photography.

Featured street photo by Peter Kool

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.

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.
