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 🙂 .

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

3 years ago, we wrote a blog post called 25 Inspirational Ladies of Street Photography. A lot has changed in the street photography scene since then, so we feel it’s time for a new, updated, larger list dedicated to women street photographers.

In an attempt to promote more active women street photographers, (i.e. photographers who actually take street photos during the time of writing) Streethunters.net explored the web in search of ladies who like shooting in the streets and share some, most, or all of their street photos online. Not all of them are strictly street photographers. Some of them shoot street on their spare time, others even less than that, but all of them have photos worth sharing and that is why they ended up on this list.

Before we present you with a roll call of these ladies, we kindly ask you to send in any names of female street photographers you know and would like to see in this list. But that is enough for an introduction, let’s go and meet the women street photographers you should follow on the web.

Introduction

Not so long ago Street Photography wasn’t as known as it is today. I remember when I used to tell my friends back in 2012 that my hobby is shooting street, they had no idea what I was talking about! And, when I explained, they thought it was weird and pervy. But things have changed since then. Things have changed a lot.

Thanks to the passion of a few individuals such as Eric Kim, Blake Andrews and Yanidel to name a few that constantly kept sharing their ideas and experiences about Street Photography through their blogs, the genre has now reached a new level of recognition.

7 Tips for Reluctant Street Photographer Cover

NOTE: This is a Guest Blog post written by Hamish Gill from 35mmc exclusively for www.streethunters.net.


Street photography – at least as I think it’s commonly understood – is something I wouldn’t ever say I aspire toward. For a start, I’m not sure I really know what street photography is! It’s such a broad term that seems to get applied to such a vast array of different sub-fields of photography that it’s quite hard to put a finger on.

To my mind, what most people – or at very least the layman – think of when they hear the term street photography is probably closer to the output of the likes of Bruce Gilden. But of course this isn’t really that accurate. The broader field of street photography seems to have laid claim to all sorts of sub-fields of photography. Take Fan Ho for example. I’ve repeatedly read of Fan Ho being classified as ‘street’, but look at his most famous works, and then compare them to Gilden’s. Unless you’re some sort of history of art type with a masters in bullshit, you’re probably going to find it quite hard to find much parity. Both shot/shoot a lot of black & white, both are highly regarded within their respective sub-fields of street photography, yet in pretty much every way they are different in terms of style and output. Gilden is brash and heavy handed, whereas Ho was contemplative, and produced work that feels gentle and light in its touch.

Not only is the field of street photography broad, but also – perhaps because of so many of the greats being easy to classify as such – it’s a very difficult field to find solid a footing within, never mind master. It’s gotta be incredibly difficult to do anything that stands proud amongst so much incredible work. In fact, the moment you classify yourself as a “street photographer” you’re automatically classifying yourself amongst such a vast sea of greatness, where do you even start to attempt to make a mark?

Introduction

Flash Street Photography is a sub genre of Street Photography that is basically shooting photos in the streets using a flash for additional light. The flash can be used for dramatic effect, for filling in shadowy areas or in other creative ways and the results of this practice are usually unusual and impressive.

In the past we have featured various Flash Street Photographers in our Featured Street Photo and Under The Influence series, however we have never compiled a list of Flash Street Photographers for you to go through in one go. Today we are doing just that and we will be sharing with you links towards their websites and social profiles so you can always stay up to date with the excellent work that they produce.

Before we dive into the list of talented Flash Street Photographers we would like to remind you of our very own Flash Street Photography workshops that take place in Athens. The next workshop is on the 29th of April 2017. We will be having more Flash Street Photography workshops in the near future. If you are interested in joining us in the 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting in London this August, we will be teaching a Flash Street Photography workshop there too. Make sure to stay tuned and check out our Workshops sections every so often.

Influential Street Photographers 2017

A Crowdsourced List Of Street Photographers

A couple of weeks ago we asked you Who do you think will be the 20 most Influential Street Photographers in 2017? and the feedback we received was just amazing. We really appreciate your participation. You recommended a lot of Street Photographers out of which a list of 124 names was finally made. Thank you!

You Recommended And You Voted

A week ago, we asked you dear Readers to do one more thing for us and that was to vote for your most influential Street Photographer out of the list of 124. You responded by voting 14,495 times! If you have been following this series of Influential Street Photographers you will notice that the votes are a lot less. Well, this time we added an IP restriction in order to avoid multiple votes from the same sources. We hope it worked!

Thank you!

It is understandable that each one of you is influenced by different Street Photographers for different reasons and that is what makes this vote even more interesting. Influences play an important role in the way an artist perceives the world and his/her art, so it is only logical that each one of us has different sources of inspiration, making our perception of what we consider “an influence” unique. What is important is that you all helped us with your vote to find who are the 20 most influential Street Photographers at this time according to you.

So here they are in the order you voted for them, starting with the Street Photographer that got the most votes:

10 Reasons I Love Street Photography Digby cover

I have been dreading this day. You have probably noticed that we three Streethunters editors take it in turns to write a ‘big’ article every week. We call them feature posts, and it’s a chance for us to wax lyrical about anything street photography we like. Andrew will often put out an awesome book review or a comprehensive under the influence analysis of some cracking street photographer, and Spyros will review some street photography gear, launch a new street hunt video, or debrief about the latest street photography jaunt he’s been on. Well, this week was my turn, and I had nothing. Zilch. Nada. I was utterly bereft of ideas of what to write about. I’ve had some things going on over the last few weeks which has meant that street photography has had to take a bit of a back seat. Without being able to get out and about with my camera I’ve been a bit stuck for inspiration. So I started to look through some of the old articles on the streethunters.net website. And I hit a goldmine. Both Andrew and Spyros have picked the 10 reasons why they love street photography, but since I’ve joined the team I haven’t got round to it. And what better way to rekindle my passion and get myself back in the groove than remind myself why street photography is so awesome in the first place? So, strap in for the 10 reasons why I love street photography!

Street Hunters Local Guides Updated

Introduction

Approximately one month ago Digby Fullam announced the Streethunters Local Guide idea that Gaël Berthon shared with us. You can read all about it if you visit his blog post “Streethunters Local Guide: Become a Guide or Fixer for Street Photographers Visiting your City”. In a nutshell what is says is that if you want to volunteer to show another street photographer around your city, you can just share your info with Streethunters.net and be added to the list of Streethunters Local Guides.

Already many of you have been emailing us, asking for connections in various cities. As mentioned in the previous post by Digby, to make things faster and easier for you, we said we would make a list of names that you can easily browse through.

So today we are presenting you with the very first version of the Streethunters Local Guides list. We are pretty sure that new names will be added here as more and more people find out about it. It is a very helpful list that will prove useful to all you traveling Street Hunters!

One more thing. You might find that some names are in more than one cities. That is because some of you have volunteered for more than one location.

Back in May we began our annual search for the most influential street photographers of the year, asking you, our readers, to submit names and ultimately vote to decide the 20 Most Influential Street Photographers for 2016 according to the Streethunters.net Readers. As is often the case with our ‘most influential street photographers’ search, our poll generated a fair amount of controversy. Some of it was warranted, and some of it was down to people not fully understanding the nature of the poll. We learn something from the feedback from the posts each year, so this year we decided to write a ‘debrief’ of sorts to help understand and interpret the polls, and to show that we take our feedback very seriously. So read on for the Street Hunters debrief of the results of the 20 Most Influential Street Photographers of 2016!

Street Photographers 2016

A Crowdsourced List Of Street Photographers

Two weeks ago we asked for your help to find the 20 most influential contemporary Street Photographers and the feedback we received was just fantastic. We are very grateful for your participation. You recommended many Street Photographers out of which a list of 115 names was finally made. Thank you!

You Recommended And You Voted

A week ago, we asked you dear Readers to do one more thing for us and that was to vote for your most influential Street Photographer out of the list of 115. You voted 20,357 times!

Thank you!

It is understandable that each one of you is influenced by different Street Photographers for different reasons and that is what makes this vote even more interesting. Influences play an important role in the way an artist perceives the world and his/her art, so it is only logical that each one of us has different sources of inspiration, making our perception of what we consider “an influence” unique. What is important is that you all helped us with your vote to find who are the 20 most influential Street Photographers at this time according to you.

One of the Street Photographers on this list, Thomas Leuthard, explained this nicely in his post when he shared the link to the poll on his facebook page. He said:

“Make your personal suggestion, who is the most influential street photographer for you. Not the best, not the most famous, not the coolest, the one who influences you…”

So here they are:
