Street Photographers 2016

A Crowdsourced List Of Street Photographers

Two weeks ago we asked for your help to find the 20 most influential contemporary Street Photographers and the feedback we received was just fantastic. We are very grateful for your participation. You recommended many Street Photographers out of which a list of 115 names was finally made. Thank you!

You Recommended And You Voted

A week ago, we asked you dear Readers to do one more thing for us and that was to vote for your most influential Street Photographer out of the list of 115. You voted 20,357 times!

Thank you!

It is understandable that each one of you is influenced by different Street Photographers for different reasons and that is what makes this vote even more interesting. Influences play an important role in the way an artist perceives the world and his/her art, so it is only logical that each one of us has different sources of inspiration, making our perception of what we consider “an influence” unique. What is important is that you all helped us with your vote to find who are the 20 most influential Street Photographers at this time according to you.

One of the Street Photographers on this list, Thomas Leuthard, explained this nicely in his post when he shared the link to the poll on his facebook page. He said:

“Make your personal suggestion, who is the most influential street photographer for you. Not the best, not the most famous, not the coolest, the one who influences you…”

So here they are:

Street Photo of the week by Trent Parke promo

Message to Readers: Because I will be away for a few days shooting a Street Hunt in Hamburg, I am posting the Street Photo of the week one day earlier. Also, the “What’s in your camera bag Street Hunter” post, will be posted a day later next week, on Tuesday, instead of a Monday. Thanks!


Street Photo of the week by Trent Parke

Trent Parke is a Street Photographer that lives in Adelaide. Besides being tremendously gifted, it is also worth noting that he is also the only Australian photographer that is a member of the elite Magnum Photos agency!

Throughout his photographic journey, Trent Parke has captured amazing moments. Photos that have paved the way to multiple awards and exhibitions. Trent Parke has won the prestigious W Eugene Smith Award for humanistic photography, the World Press Photo Awards 5 times, five Gold Lenses from the International Olympic Committee and the Canon Photo Essay Prize in the 2000 Sasakawa World Sports Awards. He has published his work in books and also his photos have been widely exhibited.

Both his B&W and colour Street Photography is inspirational at the least! Full of emotion, usually with a very strong protagonist. Lovely work on all levels. His B&W is mysterious, grainy and powerful. His colour images are mind blowing, vibrant, rich! But, I think that it is best if you visit his profile and check his work our for yourself.
