Street Photography has always been paving down the years to treat every lover of photography. Street Photography is an art of documenting People at their very surrounding or environment where they belong. There has always been those classic tales from our Masters of street Photography using film cameras, and still handling it exceptionally well. Well we are not going to comment further on the masters and their intelligence since it being a good old story known almost to all of us.
The brilliant part of street photography is that you don’t need the artist to explain the medium of it, easily relating to every layman looking at the picture, it is a mere translation of what one witnesses on a daily routine on the streets. Here the street photographer comes into play by capturing the glimpse of an ordinary life, the moment of spur to bring the awesomeness into the vision of us.

“The difficult but profoundly interesting ‘process’ of street photography is to concentrate the emotional impression of very short-lived candid moments by the help of aesthetics, symbolism, contrast and composition. It is also the ‘surreal’ aspect to catch harmonious, mad, absurd, ironic, contradicting, cynical etc. relations and moments in the normal, everyday and therefore ‘real’ world of human life.” – Andreas Stelter
In the past I developed and printed my own black and white film but I mostly shoot digital these days as I love the thrill of instant results. Shooting in the street is what I enjoy most; observing people as they go about their day-to-day business. I rarely have any interaction with my subjects, preferring to seek out those unguarded moments as I feel the moment someone starts to pose the whole dynamic changes. – Chris Moxey

A few years ago I traded my digital cameras in and went back to film! I like the physicalness of film, the same reason people might choose to knit, or do pottery. Too much of what I do for a day job doesn’t involve something you can feel or touch. Plus, when I’m done, I have something to look at, something to show for my work. Film gives me that tactile connection, and a life-long connection with my dad who was so kind to show me the way, but died way too young at 46. – Gary gumanow
My personal fine art photography delves into social aspects of people inhabiting the built environment.

Sudden and unexpected elements show up in Ksenia’s photographs. Rich in color and amazing compositions, this portfolio is a definite treat for any street photography lover.
For many years, I had a very eclectic photography and I needed much time to find my way, until discovering some b&w galleries of very good photographers which have particularly touched me. They make me realize how much b&w photography is powerful for giving emotion. And for me, it became an obviousness it was my way.
As a simple b&w street photographer in a calm country as I am, my sphere of impact is reduced. I like to look for poesia and emotion in the streets and showing streets like a place of life and not like a crossing place as we often consider it. – Magali
Light is magnificent so are the interesting characters and stellar compositions of street factors with Maria. These pictures are very simple and yet they continue to impress us for the extraordinary components within.
Majestic moments and the right compositions go well with Marja Skotheim. This portfolio will absolutely make you go awe for the photographers sense of light and decisive moments.
Strangely there seems to be a mystery going well with the silence in these photographs, the warm smiles from those wonderful human beings. A lot has been conveyed in these pictures, being in color there is a complete sketch towards reality from these pictures of a wonderful photographer Mark Carey.
No kidding, it is a way to look at the ordinary and see the unusual in it, to look at everyday situations and find a decisive moment in them, to look at candid happenings and see iconic interactions between people and their surroundings in them. – Mary Cimetta

I shoot on a Leica m6 and a Hassleblad Xpan and I still expose images onto the weird plastic stuff, it’s not so popular with the kids these days. I started making photos in the mid nineties when you would see very few people roaming the streets with a camera. This was a time when you could only capture images on rolls of plastic stuff most of which gathered dust in a drawer. – Seamus Travers
Versatile and intelligent. Shlomy Evron continues to impress us through his spellbinding images running parallely with perfection. Acute compositions and interesting characters all around.
Swapnil Jedhe’s observation towards street photography is unique and quiet phenomenal.

This tag line feels quiet different in Swapnil’s picture and makes us appreciate these wonderful photographs.
Looking at his photographs, his love for monochrome images stands out and his theory towards this genre is so absorbing and interesting for any viewer.
