The fourth instalment of Eastreet, a project dedicated to street and documentary photography of Eastern Europe, is on the horizon and the Open Call for submissions has just launched!
Eastreet 4 is one of the biggest initiatives promoting street photography from Eastern Europe. The previous three editions have seen almost 20,000 photographs submitted from photographers all over the world! And in those three editions, more than 300 photos by authors from 22 countries were presented in form of exhibition and publication! Those numbers will all certainly rise with Eastreet 4 coming this fall in Lublin, Poland!
There’s a new street photography website, and their goal is “to support, educate, and inspire a new generation of street photographers in the post Cartier-Bresson world.” Ladies and gentlemen, streetphotography.com has launched!
The Cyprus Photographic Society is not slowing down one bit with its Months Of Photography Paphos program! Here are two more events within the three-month long program that will appeal to a broad range of photographers. And like all the other events, participation is affordable, or even free!
The Cyprus Photographic Society, Pafos Branch is bringing back their contest, The Wall, as part of the Months Of Photography Paphos program. And, once again, the winning submissions will be featured in the center of Paphos, a 2017 European Capital of Culture!
The goal of The Wall is to exhibit large pictures in an outdoor public space. This is realized by the showing of 30 winning images on a wall in the city center at an eye-catching 53cm x 80cm each! The photos will be printed and installed for outdoor exposure and remain on exhibit for six months. Deadline for submission is May 2. Complete rules and guidelines can be found at www.cpspafos.com . Photographers from Cyprus and abroad are encouraged to submit.
We’ve mentioned the fantastic Months of Photography Pafos program here at Streethunters previously. Sponsored by the Cyprus Photographic Society, Pafos Branch, the program hosts an engaging and educational series of events for all photographers and for all ages. Included are various workshops, exhibitions, seminars and film screenings, and most are at a low cost or free! The three-month long program is seeking to establish itself as an international photography festival comparable with others, and it appears to be on it’s way to doing so in Cyprus’ beautiful Paphos, a 2017 European Capital of Culture.
You may recall us talking about the Months Of Photography Paphos programs here last year. Well the highly interactive, educational and successful event is back for another run in 2017! The Public Art call for entries was announced here just a few weeks ago, but the official program is now in our hands and it is packed with another schedule of great activities and events! And, once again, all of them are at a low cost or free!
The purpose of the program is to offer quality events around the photographic art for three months and establish itself as an international photography festival comparable with others. MoPP says it’s specific objectives are to:
offer to the public of Cyprus quality events about photography,
provide an opportunity for Cypriots and other photographers to be trained,
build a communication and collaboration platform for Cypriot photographers with their colleagues abroad and between cultural operators,
Gleave, who holds a Licentiateship distinction from The Royal Photographic Society, has collated a number of striking images for his debut publication, In The City. Just like the title implies, Gleave says his primary theme is the characters and scenes found at the heart of our larger urban communities. Images of Manchester comprise over half the impressions in his new book, and the same echoes resonate from other cities captured exclusively in mono, including London and New York in particular.
Daido Moriyama is one of the most prolific and admired street photographers of our time, and this living legend is still producing work at age 78.

Ask yourself how much Daido Moriyama you can handle!
