Street Photo of the week by Ilan Ben Yehuda

Ilan is a charismatic Street Photographer born and raised in Ramat – Gan, Israel. He is a graduate of the Tel Aviv Camera Obscura photography school and is also a scholar of philosophy.

Like many other Street Photographers, Ilan works in the Graphic arts industry, designing for fashion mostly. Together with his studies as a photographer and his graphic design experience, he has managed to master visual communication and visual interpretation skills that can be considered important assets to any Street Photographer.

Five years ago when Ilan Ben Yehuda started shooting Street more seriously he passionately looked for subjects such as drug addicts, homeless etc. His work was more documentary oriented. He has now changed his style and looks for surreal situations that are not necessarily classed as photojournalistic, documentary photos, but more as pure Street Photography images that aim to make the viewer wonder, question, think about what he/she is looking at. Photos with a hidden, deeper meaning.

Ilan is part of the “APF” international photography collective. An entity of Artphotofeature Magazine, the APF Collective features the work of 25 talented photographers from around the globe. Their goal is to provide a collective, balanced storytelling vision of the world we live in. You can read more about “APF” and the rest of the members of this amazing collective at www.apfcollective.com.

Yves Vernin is a Street Photographer from Marseille in the South France. Marseille, being on the Mediterranean has amazing light, like most Mediterranean cities do. Yves knows that and makes sure to take advantage of it as much as possible.

Each photograph that Yves produces, especially his latest colour work amazes me and makes me feel inspired to grab my camera and hit the streets!

Street Photo of the week by Gabi Ben Avraham

Gabi Ben Avraham from Tel Aviv is one of those Street Photographers that has a style that is full of energy! Nearly all of his photographs include at least one person in action, doing something mind blowing, something unique. Every single one of his photographs are captivating, jaw dropping. He captures life in very, very high speeds, freezing fractions of seconds, moments that the human eye can’t see, moments that happen around us all the time but most of us miss. Gabi Ben Avraham has the gift of sight and he puts it to good use. As you can tell by my writings, I admire his work and find it simply fantastic. Gabi Ben Avraham’s photography is inspiring for me, both his Black & White and Colour photos. They all have his “distinctive signature” on them. So, I invite you to check out his work for yourself and enjoy the moments he has frozen forever in time for us all to enjoy.

San Francisco by Jack Simon promo

Street Photo of the week by Jack Simon

Jack Simon is a Street Photographer from the San Francisco Bay area. What is interesting about Jack is that for the past 40 years he has been working as a Psychiatrist. In my opinion that has possibly given him the experience to spot things in people that the rest of us can’t. But this is of course just my theory, but I like to think it is true.

Jack started shooting in the Streets of SF more than 10 years ago. As he mentions in his website, he became fascinated by the possibilities of photography. I couldn’t agree more. No matter how much one tries, one can’t ever, under any circumstances achieve an exact photographic replica. Some small details will be overlooked. The only way to control a photo is in a studio environment, but then again, one needs to be precise with everything else. Jack Simon is interested in making photos that speak to his viewers, share a story. He shoots in colour only.
