Introduction

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 🙂 .

    Influential street photographers 2017

    Introduction

    Every year here at Streethunters.net we enjoy making a list of the most influential street photographers of the year. For the last 2 years these lists have been made with your help, with  inaugural one we launched in 2014 made by me alone. We ask you to submit the street photographers that influence you on a personal level and then we set up a poll so you can all vote on the street photographers you prefer. When the poll ends, the 20 names that are on the top make up the new list of the most influential street photographers of the year.

    Back in May we began our annual search for the most influential street photographers of the year, asking you, our readers, to submit names and ultimately vote to decide the 20 Most Influential Street Photographers for 2016 according to the Streethunters.net Readers. As is often the case with our ‘most influential street photographers’ search, our poll generated a fair amount of controversy. Some of it was warranted, and some of it was down to people not fully understanding the nature of the poll. We learn something from the feedback from the posts each year, so this year we decided to write a ‘debrief’ of sorts to help understand and interpret the polls, and to show that we take our feedback very seriously. So read on for the Street Hunters debrief of the results of the 20 Most Influential Street Photographers of 2016!

    Most influential Street Photographers 2016

    Introduction

    About a year ago we asked you, our Streethunters.net Readers, to make a list. The list we wanted you to create was that of the 20 most Influential Street Photographers for 2015. In that post we asked you to nominate as many Street Photographers as you liked. The nominees that you named, then got added into a long list and we asked you to vote and from that vote we got the short list that was finally published.

    The numbers from last year

    The 20 Influential Street Photographers 2015

    So, last year we all nominated together 75 Street Photographers. Then you voted 21,137 times and from those 21,137 votes, 20 names stood out. These names got into the first ever crowdsourced list of Street Photographers. A list that you made and that has been viewed more than 76645 times (at the time of writing this).

    Let’s do this again!

    So, this year we invite you all to do this again! Things have changed in the Street Photography scene. There are new names that are being mentioned all the time on the Social Networks, there are others out there that are trying hard to make a difference, influencing people around them. More and more Street Photographers are publishing books, filming short documentaries about Street Photography, being interviewed, winning awards and more. The list of names is ever changing and keeps on getting more and more interesting. So, since things are always evolving and ever changing we ask you once again to make your suggestions by sharing your favourites with us!

    You make suggestions and share your favourites with us

    Send in your favourite street photographers

    Just like last year, we the Editorial team, have already made a list of names of 21 Street Photographers that we think are the most influential for 2016. We want you to add to this list by posting as many names of Influential Street Photographers as you like in the comments. You can post 1 name or 50 names. All names will be added to a poll and then we will all vote on them.

    ATTENTION: These names will be filtered by us, we will not accept names of Street Photographers that aren’t truly influential.

    So for example if you have been a Street Photographer for the last 6 months and you want exposure and you think you can add your name to this list, think again. We want you to suggest true, influential Street Photographers. We will accept suggestions for a week, until next Wednesday evening. Then, we will take those suggestions and have a poll for another week. When the votes are in, we will know who the “The 20 most Influential Street Photographers for 2016” are.

    The names Street Hunters recommend

    Here are the 21 names of Street Photographers that we recommend in random order. We gave ourselves a limit of 7 names each so we wouldn’t get too carried away:

    1. Elliott Erwitt
    2. Mark Cohen
    3. Ed Templeton
    4. Josef Koudelka
    5. Stacy Kranitz
    6. Tatsuo Suzuki
    7. Daido Moriyama
    8. Eric Kim
    9. Gabi Ben Avraham
    10. Boris the Flash
    11. Alex Webb

    13. Martin Parr
    14. Bruce Davidson
    15. Valerie Jardin

    17. Bruce Gilden
    18. Boogie
    19. Pau Ll. Buscató
    20. Tavepong Pratoomwong
    21. Narelle Autio

    Each of the above Street Photographers are influential in their own right. For one reason or another. Somehow they have shaped the wider Street Photography community and are continuing to do so. We look forward to receiving your suggestions.

    So, come on! Send in the names of the Street Photographers that you think are the most influential for 2016!

      Influential Street Photographers Updated

      Update

      After quite a few suggestions from you, the StreetHunters.net Readers, we added an extra section at the bottom of the post called “Influential Active Street Photographers recommended by our Readers”. Enjoy!


      Introduction

      During the past years Street Photography has become widely accepted as a form of art and expression. More and more people have learned to appreciate it and to understand how hard it is to get it right. The reason why Street Photography has become more mainstream is because of some influential few that have managed to spread the word about it through their style, their blogs, their videos and their constant sharing of their experiences. These few Street Photographers that share their ideas with the rest of the world, their methods and their passion for the art have transformed Street Photography into what it is today.

      The StreetHunters.net team decided to make a list of those influencers as a way to say “thank you” for their contribution to the world of Street Photography. We understand that some of you dear StreetHunters.net Readers might not agree with some of the names being on this list. We also understand if you feel like it must be longer, or shorter. But, no matter what each and every one of us thinks, it is certain that every single Street Photographer presented here today, has helped re-shape Street Photography as we know it. So here goes:
