Reflections of New York - Photographs and text by François Van Bastelaer

I try to present the city from a different point of view. I developed a project that shows the reality as something unusual, different, sometimes almost surrealist. All these pictures are the exact reality. The use of photoshop is very low (cropping, upside-down, perhaps densifying the colors). All the pictures you see here have been existing!

Robert Herman - The New Yorkers: Color Street Photography from the 1980s

Using his father's Nikon F and a 50mm lens, he began by exploring the city as a means to connect with the people in his neighborhood and learn the craft of making images. His photos of New York City, shot between 1978-2005 on Kodachrome, are now collected in his first monograph: “The New Yorkers”. These vibrant color photographs celebrate the daily parade of life and color and light on the streets of New York as only a true artist and longtime New Yorker can capture.

'Taking My Time': Two New Books Full of Joel Meyerowitz's Masterful Street Photography

Courtesy Phaidon. Capturing the quintessential perfect moment in uncontrolled, public settings depends on a magical confluence of elements that suddenly, momentarily, match up so exquisitely they seem choreographed. For the masterful photographer Joel Meyerowitz, these moments decorate the massive pantheon of his work like confetti—so ridiculously plentiful that it starts to seem like an easy thing to capture; yet simultaneously communicating the immensity of his gift and acuity of his eye, from the very beginning, that Meyerowitz commands. Starting out early on as an advertising agency art director, Meyerowitz abandoned this career path to concentrate on photography after his boss sent him to one of Robert Frank‘s shoots.

Yale University Press - The World Atlas of Street Photography. There is no paternity test when it comes to pinning down street photography’s DNA.

Yale University Press - The World Atlas of Street Photography

As this book demonstrates so clearly, it is a genre that borrows from other forms—sculpture, theatre, video, installation and participatory art—and mingles their many presences into single frames. If your idea of street photography is limited only to the classic names like Henri Cartier-Bresson or Garry Winogrand, this book will offer you a whole new world of possibilities. The familiar idiom of street photography is bounded by the idea of the photographer as a fly (or spy) on the wall. This figure is an auteur of the sidewalk, a roving eye who captures moments within the flow of street life, a merciless shutter arresting people’s motion as they go about their everyday lives.

Given the ambitious scope of Jackie Higgins’s book, the variety should not surprise. Clarissa Bonet - City Space: Street Photography as Psychological Art. The urban space is striking.

Clarissa Bonet - City Space: Street Photography as Psychological Art

Its tall and mysterious buildings, crowds of anonymous people, an endless sea of concrete constantly intrigue me. City Space is an ongoing photographic exploration of the urban environment and my perception of it. I am interested in the physical space of the city and its emotional and psychological impact on the body. These photographs reconstruct mundane events in the city that I have personally experienced or witnessed in public. 9 fotografie dell'Italia negli anni Ottanta.

Traub. Moments of Detachment and Solitude Captured by Street Photographer Caspar Claasen. For the last few years, Amsterdam-based street photographer Caspar Claasen has been documenting the different sides of solitude, exploring the camera’s ability to isolate and express private moments of detachment experienced by subjects both young and old, human and nonhuman. Collectively, these individuals, animals, and inanimate objects form an ongoing series that teeters between the absurd and the melancholy.

For Claasen, the interplay between these two attributes is a vital mechanism, “the tragicomical . . . something we can all recognize ourselves in – laugh, grin, but at the same time have a sense of empathy.” Art & Photography: Alain Delorme. Photos Capture Street Life in Havana. As a child coming of age in Guatemala, New York-based photographer Jaime Permuth‘s perception of Cuba was shrouded in mystery and clouded by inescapable biases. When he visited the country in November of 2014 to speak at Havana’s Month of Photography, organized by La Fototeca de Cuba, he left all his assumptions at home, choosing to immerse himself within the realities of Centro Habana.

A short week after Permuth’s return to Manhattan, President Barack Obama announced his intention to repair US-Cuba relations after fifty-four years of estrangement. When the photographer arrived at Casa Miriam y Sinaí, a cozy bed and breakfast managed by a mother-and-daughter pair, he had no way of realizing that he was about to witness a Cuba on the precipice of inestimable transformation. Amongst the remains of the formerly grand buildings that line Calle Neptuno, he lingered in search of the pulsing heart of daily life in Havana.

We travel the globe, but mainly focus on the well-known public stages on the streets of New York, London, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Eamonn Doyle - i, Dublin street portraits. The photographs that form ‘i’ gestated as I started to feel my way back into photography following a long break. Around that time I was re-discovering the work of Samuel Beckett, specifically the ‘Trilogy’ comprising the novels ‘Molloy’, ‘Malone Dies’ and ‘The Unnameable’.

I began to be drawn towards a number of solitary 'Beckettian' figures I saw on the streets of Dublin, people I had seen passing me every day who seemed to be treading the same ground, day in, day out. Mindful of the words that preface Wittgenstein’s ‘Tractatus’, ‘Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent,’ I wondered how I might approach the photographing of these people, who were after all (and who remain) near-total strangers to me. The question then became: is it possible to take photographs of these people in such a way that will honour their essential, even existential, distance from me? Sarah Choi - Streets in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has so many colors in its streets: vibrant and faded; modern and traditional; bright and shaded. People, unknowingly, complete their own street scenes.

These are the most beautiful. —Sarah Choi. Yusuke Sakai - Point of View: Japanese Street Photography. The Streets of San Francisco.

Joel Meyerowitz - Joel Meyerowitz Color Work, 1970-1980, Changing Time. This is the first European exhibition of the color photography of Joel Meyerowitz. The show offers a selection of photos taken between 1970 and 1980, a period of what the photographer saw as radical and decisive change. Although Meyerowitz had taken color photographs ever since the start of his career, in 1962, it was only at the turn of the 1970s that he began working exclusively in color.

The 120 vintage or modern prints in the ensemble presented here survey that vital decade that saw him questioning the medium, engaged in aesthetic exploration and developing a new style of photography.
