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 🙂 .
Street Photo of the week by Ilan Ben Yehuda
Ilan is a charismatic Street Photographer born and raised in Ramat – Gan, Israel. He is a graduate of the Tel Aviv Camera Obscura photography school and is also a scholar of philosophy.
Like many other Street Photographers, Ilan works in the Graphic arts industry, designing for fashion mostly. Together with his studies as a photographer and his graphic design experience, he has managed to master visual communication and visual interpretation skills that can be considered important assets to any Street Photographer.
Five years ago when Ilan Ben Yehuda started shooting Street more seriously he passionately looked for subjects such as drug addicts, homeless etc. His work was more documentary oriented. He has now changed his style and looks for surreal situations that are not necessarily classed as photojournalistic, documentary photos, but more as pure Street Photography images that aim to make the viewer wonder, question, think about what he/she is looking at. Photos with a hidden, deeper meaning.
Ilan is part of the “APF” international photography collective. An entity of Artphotofeature Magazine, the APF Collective features the work of 25 talented photographers from around the globe. Their goal is to provide a collective, balanced storytelling vision of the world we live in.
