The July 2015 issue of Street Photography Magazine is now live and ready for you to enjoy.
Our featured photographer this month is Scott Houston. Scott describes photography as an explosion for him, and his adventures as an international photographer and film maker prove those words true. Be sure to listen in on some of his arresting photographic tales, which include run-ins with Neo-Nazis and assignments to shoot ecstasy users, just to mention two.
In his article, “See You in the Streets!”, Spanish photographer Javi Calvo shares what led him to street photography, why he loves the art, why he prefers hunting to fishing when on the streets, and much more. He even tackles some of the tough ethical questions that sometimes arise in relation to street photography. You won’t want to miss his beautiful photos and insightful words.
Mark Gilvey serves up a “pre-purchase and post-purchase field guide” of the Sony RX100 MK III this month as well. He’s included details about the camera’s features, how to set it up, and how to be a “Quick Draw McGraw” with it. The information he outlines will supply you with the knowledge you need to decide whether or not this camera will be the next one you take to the streets.
In the article “Kivalina”, Suzanne Tennant takes us to the streets of isolated Kivalina in Alaska with an interesting, touching, and sobering story. The tiny island called Kivalina sits 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle. By 2025, it may be completely engulfed by the ocean, thus becoming the first U.S. casualty of climate change. Suzanne believes that finding stories that need to be told is an important part of being a photographer, something she surely accomplished with this project. She has captured the Native American people who live and hunt in Kivalina in their homes, carrying out their daily routines, creating a story with people, homes and routines that face a most uncertain future.
Also, Jesper Jensen returns to transport us to “The Streets of Marrakech”, sharing the sights from an epic road trip that started and ended in this colorful city. Jesper demonstrates that Marrakech abounds with situations, people’s faces, food, and textures, making it a photographer’s paradise. Stunning people and places come to life in his street shots and portraits in this article.
Finally, be sure to check out the captures from this month’s selection of street shooters. These are photographers just like you chosen from our Flickr group each month. This month we feature photos from Ivan Di Marco, Steve Glashier, Rob Joseph, Michael Hyatt, Zahid Rahman, Daniel Gomez and Joshua Lui.
We hope you enjoy this month’s issue and, as always,…
