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.

Jon Luvellis work in exhibition at the State Historical Society of Missouri permanent art collection

Jon Luvelli is an acclaimed street photographer that is based in Missouri a state in the Midwestern United States. If you are a regular reader of the Streethunters.net website you will remember Luvelli’s work from some of our previous posts.

In 2015 we wrote a feature on his photo “Horns”, in 2016 we wrote a review about his book “One Block” and in that same year he was voted as one of the most influential street photographers of that year by you, our readers.

Today we would like to share with you some exciting news about him. The State Historical Society of Missouri, recognising Luvelli’s fine art photography and his contribution to the portrayal of Midwestern rural townscapes, will be sharing a selection of his work in their permanent art collection. The first installment of photographs is on display now at the State Historical Society’s Columbia art gallery.

2017 Streethunters.net FB Group Photos Collage

Introduction

Hopefully you’re already aware that as well as this street photography news and blog website, Streethunters.net also has a very active presence across loads of different social media channels. Some, like our Facebook page, Twitter account, Instagram, and G+ pages, we use to to share our latest news and announcements of our new blog posts. Others, like our popular YouTube channel, are the home of our pioneering Street Hunt series, as well as our informative Street Talk episodes, interviews, and slideshows of the work by the winning street photographers from our monthly theme contests. But two of our social media channels are dedicated to showcasing the work of immensely talented street photographers, and in particular, you, our loyal readers! Both our Flickr Group and Facebook Group are places where we and the rest of the world get to enjoy your very best street photos. Both are thriving communities, which we moderate carefully to ensure that users on both platforms get to enjoy both social media sites to their maximum potential, and savour some great street photos in the process. Each week the Flickr group is moderated with new photos added to one of the best contemporary street photography galleries on the web, while the Streethunters.net Facebook Group is moderated almost daily to showcase superb street photos of all different styles from all over the world created by a host of photographers shooting with all sorts of mediums and equipment. To celebrate the wonderful photos in our Facebook Group, we carefully pore over the new submissions made each week and select our very favourite photo from the week to choose as the Group Cover Photo for one whole week. We did this throughout 2016, and we did it through the whole of 2017 too. The result is the 52 best street photos we’ve seen in the Streethunters.net Facebook Group in 2017!

The gorgeous Sardinian town of Alghero will be the site of one of the new international street photography festivals of 2018!

The Alghero Street Photography Awards (ASPA) is a street photography festival organised and promoted by the cultural association “Officine di idee”, an organisation aspiring to become a reference point for the street and authorial photography. The founder of the festival is none other than Marcello Perino, a friend of us here at Streethunters.net! You may remember Marcello from Street Hunt # 15 at the 1st annual Street Hunters Meeting in London, UK and Street Hunt # 17 in Rome Italy, where Marcello was the most gracious of hosts and a fantastic guide!

This Italian street photography festival and its contests aim to promote and provide exposure to all interested authors, not only to the bizarre and sensational shot, but also to the “street photography” that can document. In a time of overabundance in the “street” genre, where shots are mostly ‘drowned’ in the unstoppable immediacy of social media, the goal is to appreciate those who can show an interest in posterity through their work.

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers!

The holidays are upon us! We can feel the celebratory mood in the air around us. It is a time for us lucky ones to reconnect with our families and the people we love. I say “us lucky ones” because I know that some of you who are reading this will probably be working, or don’t have the means to be with their loved ones during the holiday season. To all of you I send my warmest and most positive thoughts. I have been there myself and I know the feeling. It is temporary. Next year things will get better. To everybody else that will be celebrating these days with their friends and family I wish all the best. Enjoy your time with them, cherish it and make memories with your cameras!
