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 🙂 .
In the last year I have found myself wanting to learn more and more about photography. Books are always a great resource, as are also YouTube videos and blogs. But, I found that I needed something that would give me a ton of objective knowledge in a short amount of time. So, I thought that I should check and see what documentaries I could find online or on DVD that I could watch. Documentaries are always a rich and most of the times objective source of knowledge. So I did some digging and I found many resources that suggested various photography documentaries. I read some online reviews to help me make a short list of the utmost best choices and then I proceeded with watching them, one by one. Today, I am going to share this list with you, because I believe that every Street Photographer should watch these films and enrich their historical and practical knowledge of photography.
I always find a plethora of YouTube channels available about any subject, no matter how crazy it is. So naturally I thought that if I searched for Street Photography channels I would get loads of hits in the search results. Well, I was wrong. It turns out that there aren’t many Street Photography YouTube channels out there after all. As a matter of fact I can count them on the fingers of my one hand!
I thought that even though there aren’t that many YouTube channels available it would still be useful to list them all in a blog post, because you never know when you will want to take a look at a Street Photography tutorial, or listen to a Street Photography idea / concept.
