Send in more camera bags to streethunters.net

Introduction

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.

We need more camera bags

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers, for more than 2 years now we’ve been sharing with you the contents of your camera bags. We have finally reached the point where we are at the 100 bag precipice. We have published 99 street photography Camera Bags and we are waiting for that elusive 100th camera bag to one day pop into our mailbox.

Why the camera bags have stopped

Since we published camera bag 99 on August 1st 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.

Rage Against The Light Cover

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

If you have been following our blog for a while, you might remember the talented Australian Street Photographer Markus Andersen from Melbourne. We shared a cool video documentary he made about his Street Photography called “Into the Belly of the Beast” and he was also kind enough to participate in “What’s in your Camera Bag Street Hunter” by sharing the contents of his bag.

Rage Against The Light pages 02-03

This time we are writing to share with you the news of the release of Markus’ first photography book called “Rage Against the Light“. You can read more about “Rage Against the Light” on the publisher’s website. From what we can see from the photos available to us and the video which we are sharing below, this looks like an impressive collection of surreal b&w photos by Markus. We can only imagine how cool the photos will look in print!

Inside Markus Andersen’s Camera bag! (Bag No36)

Hi there!

I’m Markus Andersen, I am a Sydney, Australia based photo media artist. After completing a Diploma of Photography at the Sydney Institute of Technology, I have worked professionally as a freelance photographer. Using both traditional film and digital as capture mediums my art practice encompasses documentary, street and conceptual bodies of work looking for the odd, unusual and unsettling in daily life. The gear is pretty simple when shooting personal street / documentary work. Usually always film and I only take a single camera and a back up camera when shooting.

My work has been exhibited in New York, Paris, Istanbul, Toronto, Sydney and the United Kingdom. I have an upcoming exhibition of my work in 2015 at the esteemed Australian Centre For Photography in Sydney, Australia.
