Streetphotography.com

Streetphotography.com features quite a few photographers working in the general area of Street photography. Most are in colour but several B&W works are available to view here. I’ve picked out a few works from those on show here that registered particularly with me for one reason or another.

Charles Petit

There is a huge amount of joy and vibrancy in this image, very much suggestive of innocent childhood. It put me immediately in mind of Roger Mayne’s ‘Girl Jiving’ photograph from his Southam Street project. Youth is very much a constant even with a sixty year difference.

Richard Koci Hernandez

His work is more constructed than ‘straight’, resulting in some haunting images. In particular his B&W work suggests a desire for the dream-like impact associated with surrealism.

Several photographs on show here have a particular affinity for eccentric, animals and children but this image of a man playing a flute has a particular resonance in the light of the BLM protests and the death of George Floyd

Olga Karlovac

Dark tones and deliberate blurring give many of her images a disturbing atmosphere. Several feature a lone figure, often female, walking through streets. The image below is particularly ominous; the manipulation of the image means it is unclear if the girl is walking towards the figures in the middle distance. She also seems to be deliberately trying to avoid the gaze from these figures. Does she sense danger?
