Markus Hartel : ‘Subway Motion Study’ (Street Photography)

“What is street photography? A reflection of every day life – real, unaltered impressions of public places, places that everybody visits every day, the street where you live, the parking lot of your favorite grocery store, the subway. Street photographers document the truth – take candid pictures of things that you don’t notice in your daily grind. This involves attention to detail… attention to scenes, moments that you only recognize subconsciously.

Julien Legrand : Street Photography

“For several years, I’ve spent most of my free time wandering in the streets and watching what is happening around me, camera in hand, ready to shoot. What is interesting to me is the unscripted nature of everyday life, often more poetic than it appears when seen in a way.

Alexey Titarenko : “St. Petersburg” Series (Photography)

“Titarenko presents the city as mystical and eerie, a reflection of the many tragedies that occurred there throughout the 20th century. His key inspiration is not contemporary photographic practice, but rather music, and particularly that of Shostakovich. His black-and-white pictures allow for details that situate the scene in time and place. Many photographers have employed “blur”, but Titarenko applies it to street photography, transforming straight reportage into haunting poetry.” Barbara Pollack

Umberto Verdoliva : Street Photography

“The road is my stage, I watch the show trying to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary in my way of seeing. The light, shadows, geometry, the moment are the tools I use. I don’t know anything else.” – U Verdoliva

Laurent Roch : ‘Lights and Shadows’ (Street Photography)

When I look at these photographs, it opens up inside me feelings of wonderment at the beauty of everyday life. My aim, if possible, is to portray, without being too clichéd, the poetry and also the harshness of everyday life. An unexpected gesture, a look tainted with sadness, an amusing stance.

Jon DeBoer : Street Photography

I do not seek to shoot photos that just depict the world around me as it appears to the eye. For these reasons, I primarily work in black and white and often use longer exposure times.

Brian Day : Street Photography

I don’t avoid the reality of life in my photographs, but I do make a conscious effort to show that life goes on. There is a potential for happiness, love, and beauty to be found wherever there is life.

Dani Subagja : ‘Hong Kong’ Series (Street Photography)

“In my opinion, black & white photos are somehow more able to tell the depth of a story; something beyond the colour (black & white) itself, since it might be easier to get disrupted by the colours of a photo. I agree both colour and black & white work better for certain subjects.

Paul Szynol : ‘Street Photography’ Series

“I look for short stories; I think they’re everywhere. Then I frame them in a way that I think is visually interesting and compelling, both in terms of form and in terms of content. Lautreamont defined beauty as “the random meeting of an umbrella and a sewing machine on an operating room table.”
