Street photographer Elisa Tomaselli died. Her passing sent a shockwave through the street photography community that responded in turn with a flood of comments and reactions. This tragedy reminded all of us that behind the little avatars, comments and likes we interact with on our computers, phones and tablets there are actual, real live people.

If you are a regular on this website, you might have noticed that it has been a while since I have personally reached out to you with a blog post. Since the beginning of the new year, I have only published a few Camera bags, that you have so generously shared with us and some Throwback Tuesday posts. The last few months have been very busy for me. I have had my hands full at work and at the same time my personal life became more demanding. As a result, I had to sacrifice time from Streethunters.net. Fortunately things are now back to normal, and I am once again ready to pour my energy and my passion into Street Photography.
The purpose of today’s post
The purpose of today’s post is to make an important announcement and to share with you what to expect from the Streethunters.net website and its Social Media channels in 2019.
Dear Streethunters.net Readers, for more than 4 years, we have been sharing with you the contents of your camera bags. Just so you know, we take great pride in showing off your camera bags dear Readers! At this point in time we have published 158 street photography Camera Bags already but lately things have slowed down.
Why the camera bags have stopped
Since we published camera bag 158 on July 16th there have been no new submissions and as such the “What’s in your Camera Bag?” weekly posts have stopped being published. Unlike our other posts, the “What’s in your Camera Bag” posts depend 100% on you and your level of participation.

Meryl Meisler is back with a new exhibition, this time featuring photographs of New York’s Lower East Side during the 1970’s & ‘80s!
Meisler, the acclaimed New York photographer who documented the heart and heat of the wild 1970’s and 80’s disco and punk scenes in the city, has two acclaimed books published, ‘A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick’ (Bizarre, 2014), and ‘Purgatory & Paradise SASSY ‘70s Suburbia & The City’ (Bizarre, 2015) and has had her work featured in numerous exhibitions. Now she will add her exhibition, ‘LES YES!’ at The Storefront Project in New York City to her growing list of work.
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.
