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.

The second edition of the Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF) is opening this Friday, launching a weekend full of street photography goodness including photo contests, workshops, exhibitions, lectures, photo walks, photo feedbacks and more!
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.
