Photo of the week by Robert Doisneau

Street Photo of the week by Robert Doisneau

Robert Doisneau is one of the most talented and amazing photographers that has ever lived. Period. He was an active Street Photographer for more than 60 years, more than most others and his work depicts the evolution of the modern world from the early 1930s all the way up until the end of the 20th century, in the mid 1990s. His photographs of France are iconic, they are epic. You have certainly seen one or more of them in your lifetime even if you don’t know that he was the photographer that made the shot. He was creative, innovative, funny, brave and daring. He would take the photo of a funny situation just as passionately as he would photograph the fighters of the French resistance in the barricades during WWII. He would capture the magic, playful moments of children, just as well as the sensational look of a beautiful woman. He would be there to snap the moment, to forever record scenes that are now part of European Modern History.

Street Photo of the week by Yanidel

Yanick Delafoge or as he is better know as Yanidel, is an international Street Photographer that has been shooting in the streets for quite some time. Originally from Orbe, Switzerland Yanidel now resides in central Argentina. When he first got interested in Street Photography he was in Paris, where he captured moments for four years. He has a very large portfolio from the capital of France with some beautiful images. After that 4 year period of shooting Paris ended, he decided to go around the world in 80 weeks with the primary goal of shooting Street Photography. His travels took him to Myanmar, India, Cuba, Turkey, Australia, Japan, Mexico, Venice, Thailand, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and finally Argentina. During his trips he managed to take many photographs and his overall portfolio grew in both quantity and quality.

According to Yanidel himself:

I consider myself part of the Humanist tradition yet, diverging from a purely documentary approach, I try to give a surrealist and lyric dimension to the little facts of our daily life, trying to blend in some humour and a positive spin from time to time.

Yanidel has had his work exhibited and has been interviewed many times by blogs and magazines. He has also released a book, that you can read about on his website. Besides being a talented and prolific Street Photographer, Yanick Delafoge is in my opinion one of the most influential Street Photographers I know of. I have written about him previously in my blog post “The 10 most Influential Active Street Photographers”. The amount of photographs he has to share and the free knowledge he gives away on his website is priceless. Yanidel’s was the first Street Photography blog I had ever found on the web that had such useful content.

Untitled - Justin Sainsbury

Street Photo of the week by Justin Sainsbury

Justin Sainsbury is a Street Photographer from Brighton, UK. He is interested in photographing split seconds of the English and their culture in a way that a story can be born. By taking a closer look at his work I think that he wants to make photos that, from what I understand, radiate the “Englishness” of his subjects through those split second stories. For more about what “Englishness” is, you should check out Martin Parr’s “Think of England” on YouTube.

Justin explains what he is interested in finding when shooting street in his own words on his website, where he says:

” I’m mainly interested in the English disposition and how this is played out in leisure time. Without the before and after, a picture (frozen in time) has the potential to change what really happened. To me, this triggers an emotional response that is all the stronger if it proves whimsical, irreverent or plain absurd ”

Justin uses colour, shadows, fast shutter speeds and clever compositions to make photos that have their own latent fictional stories, stories that derive from everyday situations.

Justin Sainsbury’s work has been published in magazines, featured on websites, and exhibited in festivals and galleries. He has been interviewed about his work and is well known amongst fellow Street Photographers.

Street Photo of the week by Chris Farling

Chris Farling is from Chicago and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NYC, USA. He is a charismatic Street Photographer that enjoys observing, discovering and capturing life in the streets. According to Chris, Street Photography is an improvisational art, much like Jazz. That is what makes it different to the other genres of photography. You can’t know what will show up in front of you, you have to learn to anticipate everything and anything. Here at Street Hunters we agree 100% with that point of view. Street Photography is as Chris says in his own words “an honest way of actively living in the world.”

Samuel George Wells is a Street Photographer and an active member of our GooglePlus StreetHunters.net Readers Community. He is from the United Kingdom and he works for the Associated Press. According to himself, he is a Hack Photographer and wannabe sauce maker which I personally think is awesome! I am pretty sure that if his sauces are as good as his Street Photography, whoever is lucky enough to try them must really experience a gastronomical sensation! Sam’s work is delicious in other words! He isn’t afraid to shoot in colour or B&W, landscape or portrait, with a flash or without, to do selfies, to experiment in any way he can possibly think of! He is a very talented child of the 60’s blooming as a Photographer now, today! So, check out his work!
