Jon Luvellis work in exhibition at the State Historical Society of Missouri permanent art collection

Jon Luvelli is an acclaimed street photographer that is based in Missouri a state in the Midwestern United States. If you are a regular reader of the Streethunters.net website you will remember Luvelli’s work from some of our previous posts.

In 2015 we wrote a feature on his photo “Horns”, in 2016 we wrote a review about his book “One Block” and in that same year he was voted as one of the most influential street photographers of that year by you, our readers.

Today we would like to share with you some exciting news about him. The State Historical Society of Missouri, recognising Luvelli’s fine art photography and his contribution to the portrayal of Midwestern rural townscapes, will be sharing a selection of his work in their permanent art collection. The first installment of photographs is on display now at the State Historical Society’s Columbia art gallery.

PhoS Athens Street Photography Festival

A few months ago, we here at Street Hunters were pleased to announce that we would be participating in PhoS in Athens, the first and only free street photography colloquium in Greece, made by you for you, talented street photographers! Now, the official program has been announced!

PhoS is going down in Athens from November 10th through the 12th, and there is a lot of action packed between those dates. That action will consist of workshops, talks, portfolio reviews, walks, contests, exhibitions and more! Better yet, the events are free of charge! That’s a pretty sweet deal for a festival that will feature the best from both Greek and international street photography, all over the course of one weekend!

The BSPF describes itself as a cultural project whose objective is to promote street photography as an urban research tool, a form of cultural communication and a visual art. Inspired by Brussels’ urban landscape, the festival’s main ambition is to provide an international platform that looks at Brussels through the fresh eyes of its citizens and engaged photographers.

One of Time Magazine’s Unsung American Female Photographers of the Past Century, who was known for documenting the heart, heat and abandon of the wild 1970’s and 80’s disco and punk scenes, is back with a new exhibition! However, this time, Meryl Meisler has turned her lens on a different circus.

Sassy Circus & Creepy Clowns features Meisler’s images from the Finale Day of The Greatest Show on Earth, along with her interpretations of The 45th Administration. The Greatest Show on Earth refers to The Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which just ended it’s run of 146 years, and Meisler was at one of the finale performances to capture it. The circus ended its run due to declining ticket sales. The decline was attributed to the circus no longer using live elephants in its performances after scrutiny from animal rights groups and corresponding local ordinances.

Streethunters.net summer break 2017

As we roll into August, the temperatures are rising and so is the amount of work we have here at Streethunters HQ! So… Spyros, Digby and myself are going to take two weeks off to recharge, re-organize and ready ourselves for the coming months. Before the engine overheats, we figure it’s best to let it cool down, change the oil, give it a flush and rotate the tires. Beginning Tuesday, August 15th, www.streethunters.net is taking a little online break!
