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.
Street Photo of the week by Saul Leiter
This week, we recognise Saul Leiter as the Master of Photography he surely is. Dying, alas, always brings images of the person to the fore and for most the homage bears upon a single image or series. For Saul Leiter this is impossible. Even though known for certain attributes such as; having a ‘painterly quality’ in his photographs which his contemporaries didn’t, or being able to use colour to push the emotional feeling in his images. He is known for colour rather than an image. Having looked through as much as we can find of his oeuvre we noticed Leiters work always appears to be peeking out or through, almost always another pane of glass between him and the happening he photographs,not just the lens.
Street Photo of the week by Fred Hertzog
With a number of Masters across the internet we thought we would feature a lesser know/recognised Master ; Fred Hertzog from Stuttgart, Germany but most widely known primarily for his photos of life in Vancouver, Canada. He focuses on the working classes mainly and at a time when many were using black and white he used colour slide film. For us at least the glorious use of muted colour whilst documenting unposed street life just at the turn of mass marketing,media and change of identity on our streets gives his individual eye. He is able to imbue his images with a serenity and innocence without losing a sense of individuality of the characters within his scenes.
Street Photo of the week by Mickaël Liblin
Since we started this weekly Friday Feature we have been sharing with you selected photographs from Street Photographers from all around the world. Each Street Photographer has has a special style that works as a unique identifier. The list of these Street Photographers had be written by the Street Hunters team a long time ago, I think it was originally composed in October and we have been following it to the letter. The other day, Andrew, Casper and myself, thought that it would be awesome to spice this weekly feature up a bit and to start featuring some of the StreetHunters.net Readers photos in addition to Street Photographers on our list, as well as the photo of an old Master Photographer. So, that way we will get a nice mix of Friday Features that will have a famous contemporary Master Street Photographer one week, an amazing StreetHunters.net Reader the next week and an old Master Photographer the next. This way we think the Feature will be a little bit more interesting. Anyway, let us know what you think!
Street Photo of the week by Dimitris Makrygiannakis
We thought that for this week a colour photo would be best. So we looked at our list of the 50-60 Street Photographers we already have decided to promote in this weekly feature and decided to share Dr. Dimitris Makrygiannakis’s work with you this Friday.
Dimitris Makrygiannakis, a.k.a. ngravity is a gifted Street Photographer with an eye for the smart moment, the moment that can be considered symbolic. After observing his work it is obvious that Dimitris really pushes the boundaries of Street Photography, creating illusions through coinciding moments. This is very hard to achieve and needs a lot of practise and as he himself said, he wouldn’t have evolved in the way he has if he hadn’t devoted himself 100% to Street Photography for a few months. Dimitris lives and works as a doctor in Sweden and is originally from Greece.

Sanja Buterin is an amazing and gifted Street Photographer with a passion that can be noticed through her work. Her photography is a mixture of film and digital black and whites and covers a wide range of Street Photography styles.

Since I began photography in January I have owned two cameras. My first purchase was a Canon SX240 compact camera and then, in July, I purchased a Nikon D7000 with the 18-105mm kit lens along with the 35mm and 50mm 1.8G prime lenses. So, why did I choose a DSLR?
I don’t have any first hand experience with any other types of camera so I would like to talk about why I chose the equipment I did. I will also talk about the positives and negatives I have found so far.
This week I thought I would do more of a pictorial blog post about the places I go and the streets I walk looking for material. I live in the South East of Spain, just outside the city of Orihuela which is situated close to the border of the Alicante and Murcia regions. Orihuela has been my main source of material but I love to go to the cities of Murcia and Alicante when it’s possible.
