(“Light bulb” by Lesley Ann Ercolano

Recently Complex put out a list titled “The 50 Greatest Street Photographers Right Now” which has caused quite the stir. Although I was happy to see my name on the list, I was a bit embarrassed to see my name there as half of the people included weren’t even what I would consider street photographers.

I chatted with a few people online, and thought it may be a good idea to make a list of 50 street photographers people should follow on Flickr – who may not be as well known. However after crunching away at this for around 5 hours, I only have enough mental energy for 25. Some of the names you may recognize, and others you may not. Regardless check out the fresh talent in the street photography community on Flickr!

Great Street Photography on Flickr

Street Photography Collectives

Thanks to Charlie Kirk for helping me compile this list.

Who are some other talented street photographers on Flickr you would add to this list (that aren’t that well known?) Share the knowledge by leaving a link to their Flickr below!

    Nice list. Much better than the other one.

    However, the main problem remains: the citizens of the Internet only know other citizens of the Internet. Some of the very best street photographers may be on the Internet, but not necessarily on Flickr and all the other social communities where we waste our time.

    How about a list of ten (versus *the ten most*) influential street photographers that get published (not self-published, Blurb etc.) frequently and/or get exhibited by renowned institutions (and Leica sponsored exhibitions at Leica stores don’t count either)? The list should be reasonable international, not only focussing on the USA.

    I can submit a first name to that list from Germany: Andreas Herzau.

    • http://erickimphotography.com/blog Eric Kim

      Great idea – got any other names to recommend?

  • http://www.ericspiegelphotography.com/ Eric Spiegel

    Great list Eric. I always love finding more street photographers to follow on Flickr. Thanks!

  • http://www.facebook.com/fiddlergene Gene Lowinger

    Couldn’t agree more with you Eric. Seems to me that most of those 50 named aren’t street shooters, and their work wasn’t street photography. I don’t post on Flickr, but check my blog at genelowinger.blogspot.com and http://500px.com/fiddlergene

  • http://twitter.com/50mm_Streettog DipayanBhattacharjee

    Great list Eric…

    For people who are interested, long back I had posted two such lists of street photographers who i felt were a must follow in Flickr and 500px respectively… If interested, check these out…

    your list is miles ahead of the other one. thanks for taking the time to make this. i already added more than half the people. lots of talent.

    • http://erickimphotography.com/blog Eric Kim

      Definitely!

  • http://the-invisible-cities.com/ invisiblecities

    Hey Eric, I also think this list is miles ahead of the terrible 50 best street photographers, but most of these seem to come straight from the HCSP group, you need to diversify your inspiration a bit more.

    • http://erickimphotography.com/blog Eric Kim

      Got a lot from HCSP, Greek Street Photographers Group, and some personal recs. Will do some more searching in the future – got any recs?

    One of my personal favorites, I think his work is incredible:

    Some incredible photographers on this list. Andreas Kakaris’ 4th image reminds me of the Mos Def song Ms. Fat Booty. “A$$ so fat that you can see it from the front,” so the lyrics go…
