This month we have a record-setting number of interviews with four featured photographers. Two of them happened to be French women both living in the midwestern US. Another is our first featured photographer from Brazil and another is from London.
Marie Laigneau from Paris has been living and working in Chicago for the past four years. She’s an avid street photographer whose images of street life in the windy city have a definite french look and feel.
Valeria Jardin, originally from Normandy in France, now lives in chilly Minneapolis. She’s well known for her intimate street photography workshops conducted in cities around the world. She took time from her busy travel schedule to talk to us about her training and the challenges of shooting on the street.
Mark George, known in the online community as Markos Görges, is a London shooter with a flair for the humorous side of life. He’s a member of the new Street Photography London collective and a graphic designer by profession.
Speaking of designers, our first featured photographer from Brazil, Anderson Peron, is an architect. He walks the streets of Sao Paulo in search of subjects for his unique imagery.
Stefan Stevanovic, a professional photographer from Serbia, shares his project, “Graffiti of Belgrade.” Shooting street subjects that don’t move gives him the opportunity to capture his images in just the right light and from the best angle.
John Cox, a photographer from Toronto, Canada, penned an article about a problem most street photographers face. He gives us some good advice about how to move in crowds to capture your shot. It’s good stuff.
Our Street Shooters of the Month keep coming back with more compelling work. Have a look at some of the best submissions from members of our community.
You can see it all in the March 2014 issue of Street Photography Magazine.
