My Street PhotoBlog: Streets of Athens

If you like what you read, please :+favlove: this article so it reaches more deviants

First it was film, darkroom, paper. Then it became pixels, software, screen. And for some paper too.
A big thanks to those who decided to let us enjoy their pictures in paper and get the feel of the real thing.
It needs time, devotion and trust to set a street photo book of your own. Let's see who did it!



HAPHAZARD ANTHROPOLOGY - By Simon Becker from 46,74 €
HAPHAZARD ANTHROPOLOGY in short - By Simon Becker from 30,64 €

I finally got around to putting together a new book. And because it turned out kind of big and rather expensive, I thought I'd add a smaller, reduced "pocket" version (64 frames instead of ~100 in the "big" version). They are both a little more sophisticated and imo "richer" than my previous try "reciprocities": I now have photos on every page, not just one per double page, and they are supposed to "work" together on one or another level. It is subdivided in four geographical (not chronological) chapters: berlin, léman (lake geneva area), london and vancouver. Those who bought the recoprocities book might find that I used 4 or 5 pictures again as they just made sense in the sets they're in, but there's also quite a few frames in there that I have never shown to anyone before.

If any of you should decide to support me by buying one or two, my profit is about 10-12€ per copy sold and I promise to spend it all on my photography.



UNTITLED A journey through the streets - By Eyal Binehaker from 48,74 €



LISBOA - By Nuno F. Silva from 38,95 €

Collection of photographs about Lisbon, Portugal. 100% Black&White. 98% Film Photography


STREET PHOTOGRAPHY in LYON - By Baptiste Hauville from 20,95 €

If you don't know what to do right now (or this week-end...), I suggest you to take a look at my (beautiful?) book/portfolio that I made.



Four Cantos - By Eric Strijbos from 30,95 €

The book has 80 pages and is in full-colour. You may recognize a number of pictures that are already in my gallery, but most of the work is unpublished. Also, a number of the pictures that you may know, have been seriously redone. Apart from achieving at least a hint of quality, my concern was that the book was really a book, a flowing visual story that occasionally makes you leaf back and forth, and not a "best-of" collection of pictures with a cover around it. I hate artistic ego-documents, but it has been my experience, here too, that, while the lens may point away from you, it may still show something of your innermost soul. If anything, I'd call my book a "we-document", it's about people, any people, not just tourists and Italian. So, it's not really a travel book either.


Taipei Streets Annual (2008) - by Brian Webb (eBook) from $6.75


Largely Unnoticed - By Claire Atkinson from 33,07 €

Urban Photography. Photos depicting the human condition taken in and around Manchester & the North West of England.

Been gone too long; this is the first time I've heard of `SimonSawSunlight's work in book form!

A tip anyone can figure out, but I figured I'd drop anyway because whatthehell: If you go to a Blurb site in a different language, then automatically switch to the English site, it won't redirect to the link in question in English. Just search for the book name and it's right there.
So, Largely Unnoticed, Haphazard Anthropology in Short, and Haphazard Anthropology are some English links.

Intend to buy those two when funds allow, and look at others a little more after that. Photography, especially street photography, seems to be on such a different level when you have it in print and in a collection like these. :love:

Glad I caught this; just started poking around again. :eager:

Yes, print is much more effective for street :)
