Featured Street Photo by Ilya Shtutsa
Ilya Shtutsa is a street photographer from the East side of Russia. As a child Ilya was interested in photography. He used to photograph his everyday life, document the people of his community and capture his surroundings up until the age of 18 when for some unknown reason he suddenly lost his interest in photography and stopped using a camera all together. After that point Ilya Shtutsa moved on with his life unaware that 20 years later the lure of photography would draw him back in, and this time for good! From the point Ilya decided to start using a camera again he has never stopped, and by the looks of it will not lose interest in photography again. Now, he is a proud member of the Observe collective and a recognised street photographer amongst the members of the street photography community.
