Street Photo of the week by Maria Plotnikova

Maria Plotnikova is a Street Photographer from Moscow, Russia, that has a talent for freezing time in her own unique way. She works almost exclusively in colour and for that reason has a very good understanding of how all colours work together, mixing them and matching them in her interesting compositions with one goal, to create amazing images. Those images initially attract the viewer, they grab his/her attention for a long period of time. While the viewer is looking at her photographs, wonder and analysis comes to him / her almost instinctively. Finally after the looking and processing of the images is over, the viewer can’t stop thinking of them. They have been carved into his / her brain. That’s what good photography does to a person. Is sticks.

Street Photograher of the Week by Josef Koudelka

Josef Koudelka was born in 1938, trained as an aeronautical engineer until 1967 when he decided to take up photography.

He had returned from a project photographing gypsies in Romania just two days before the Soviet invasion, in August 1968. He witnessed and recorded the military forces of the Warsaw Pact as they invaded Prague and crushed the Czech reforms. Koudelka’s negatives were smuggled out of Prague into the hands of the Magnum agency, and published anonymously in The Sunday Times Magazine under the initials P. P. (Prague Photographer) for fear of reprisal to him and his family.

His pictures of the events became dramatic international symbols. In 1969 the “anonymous Czech photographer” was awarded the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa Gold Medal for photographs requiring exceptional courage.

Helen Levitt is our choice for this weeks Master of Street Photography. Documenting life post the ‘Great Depression’, Helen Levitt’s work presents the ordinary.

Street Photo of the week by Stephen Foster

Every month, we share a photograph of one of our StreetHunters.net Readers in our Street Photo of the Week special. This time around it is with great pleasure that we introduce to you Stephen Foster a rising star in Street Photography that is from the UK. Stephen is still looking for his style, experimenting with different approaches and lately stepped back in time and took up film photography in an attempt to broaden his mind in this exciting photographic journey. Luckily for us and all the StreetHunters.net Readers that are part of the private Google+ Community we run, we get to witness Stephen’s progress and experimentations on a daily basis. We get to feed on his raw enthusiasm for Street Photography and get inspired to open the door of our apartment, our home and just head out and take pictures! Stephen is learning, as we are all, but he is also a good advisor, always being honest, he will never reply with a “great shot” comment, he is a hard judge of his own work, modest and seems to have loads of fun when shooting.

Street Photo of the week by Lee Thatcher

Lee Thatcher is a Street Photographer from the UK. If you visit his About page on his website he mentions that he likes to make photographs of anything that interest him. His portfolio is mostly in mono with a very few exceptions and in the 1:1 format (again with very few exceptions), usually shot with an iPhone and then processed in various apps. When looking through his work, you get a feeling of looking at photographs from another time, that is the reason why we are somewhat reminded of Daido Moryiama and William Klein’s early Harlem New York shots. These two artists could possibly have played an important role in Lee Thatchers photographic journey, but only he would know that for sure.
