I recently had a chance to catch up and grab a coffee with Justin Vogel and Matt Stuart while I was in NYC. I did a quick video interview with Justin about his feelings on moderating the HCSP group on Flickr, what he thinks makes a memorable image, shooting color film, and his other thoughts on street photography.

You can also see a past interview with him on my blog here.

1x1.trans Capturing Space, Color, and Light in Sao Paulo: Street Photography by Gustavo Minas

Gustavo Minas is a street photographer based in Sao Paulo, Brazil and part of the Street-Photographers and the SelvaSP collective.

Gustavo: Hi there, I’m a 32 years old guy born in Cassia, a small town in Brazilian countryside, now living in Sao Paulo. I first got interested in photography during my journalism course at uni, around 2001. Maybe a bit earlier, as I drew a lot as a child, roughly, and photographed school parties with a point and shoot.

After university, I lived in London for 1 year, working as a waiter and just spending time. I bought a handycam with miniDV tapes and started filming everything around, later editing with Windows Movie Maker. I was inspired by those late boring Godard movies, which are mostly about apparently random images. These were the origins of my street photography, as the process was about the same – wandering alone and watching people.

1x1.trans The Culture: Documenting the Life of a Korean Tattoo Artist by Josh White

The Culture” © JT White

This guest blog post is by JT White, a street photographer currently based in Seoul, Korea.

JT: Eric and I often talk about projects as we work on them. We often help each other edit, sequence. He usually does the editing, me the sequencing. I suppose that is just what we’re good at. While editing my project, The Culture, Eric asked if I would write a short post about the project and how it came about.

As a bit of background, Eric and I have been friends for a long time. We taught a Leica Workshop together in Seoul a couple of years ago. Shortly after that workshop I came back to Canada. During that time I had four different Leica cameras and a bunch of lenses. I was like the king of gear. I had everything and bought and sold everything else.

Observe Collective Interview #4: David Horton

by Eric Kim on February 24, 2014

1x1.trans Observe Collective Interview #4: David Horton

Eric’s Note: ​OBSERVE is an international photography collective focused primarily on the practice of candid street photography. This week’s feature is David Horton from Boston, Massachusetts. 

David Horton: I’m a graphic designer by day, street photographer by accident. After art directing and observing some of the finest commercial photographers in the business for over a decade, I made the conscious decision to get behind the camera instead of the photographer. I discovered street photography. I am primarily interested in making emotional connections. I’m interested in telling stories and creating a narrative. I’m interested in capturing the mystery—the mystery of life and the beauty of people moving through the world.
