Although street photography is still very much a niche online, here are the top street photography blogs I regularly follow online.

American Suburb X

http://www.americansuburbx.com/

Although American Suburb X brands themselves as more of a “photography and culture” magazine, they consistently have photo-essays and interviews with street photographers. If you look at any of their features, they are very well-written and long-format (something that a lot of sites no longer feature). Check out this great feature about Garry Winogrand here.

 

I recently came upon the great flash street photography work by Dirty Harry and also found out that he curates an awesome street photography blog. On a very consistent basis, he finds the street photographs that he finds the most inspirational to him and posts it on his blog. Stay tuned for an interview with him on my blog soon :)

Leica Blog

http://blog.leica-camera.com/

Where would street photography be without Leica and rangefinders? Regardless, they feature many great interviews with street photographers on their blog and also keep us in the loop with what the masterminds at Leica are up to. Definitely keep them bookmarked.

B – Blake Andrews

http://blakeandrews.blogspot.com/

Out of all the street photography blogs I listed, “B” from Blake Andrews has definitely got to be my favorite. Sarcastic, rugged, and raw– Blake Andrews never sugarcoats anything he has to say that is on his mind. Not only that, but the man has a fantastic eye (he is in In-Public after all) and has great photo-analyses and essays. Here is one of my favorite articles on him on editing.

Seven Seven Nine – Nick Turpin

http://www.sevensevennine.com/

Nick Turpin is one of the anchors in the street photography community and has been working extremely hard in pushing street photography as a serious art in the community. He is also the founder of In-Public and has a fantastic eye when it comes to street photography. Although his blog Seven Seven Nine isn’t updated nearly as often as I’d like–it is still a treasure chest full of great information and insights.

Yanidel Street Photography

http://www.yanidel.net/

Yanidel is a passionate and extremely consistent street photographer from Paris who recently quit his job to travel the world for 80 weeks (the man has balls). I had the great pleasure of meeting with him when I was in Paris, and the guy not only loves street photography but blogging as well. Live vicariously through him and check out his blog!

JT in Seoul – Josh White

http://jtinseoul.wordpress.com/

Josh White is a street photographer that I stumbled upon a couple months back and even had an interview with him on my blog. He describes himself as a “law student on extended vacation in Korea” and is obsessed with documenting the streets of Seoul. Not only does he take great photographs, he also has a plethora of street photography gear (Leica M9, Leica X1, Fujifilm FinePix X100, Ricoh GRDIII, Ricoh GXR, etc) and gives great “real world” reviews. Peep him now!

Severin Koller

http://severinkoller.at/blog/

Severin Koller is a damn good street photographer and has been featured on the Leica blog recently. He hails from Vienna and looks like he is out and about doing street photography workshops with Chris Weeks all around the world right now. Check out his blog for his inspirational images.

Invisible Photographer Asia

http://invisiblephotographer.asia/

If you want a series of wonderfully curated fine art and street photography from Asia, Invisible Photographer Asia is the place. They have been only around for a year through the founding of Kevin WY Lee, but they have exploded in popularity and been getting a ton of great buzz lately. Oh yeah, and I’m a contributor there too ;)

Burn Magazine

http://www.burnmagazine.org/

Curated by Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey, burn is is an evolving journal
for emerging photographers. All the images included are extremely well-curated, so you know every visit you make you will see some truly great images. Highly recommended for any serious street or journalist photographers out there.

Street Hunters

streethunters.net

street-hunters

The guys working at street hunters are one of the newest street photography blogs on the block, offering insightful tutorials, tips, and tricks. If you need some inspiration or tips, check them out!

In-Public Blog

http://in-public.com/blog/

in-public-blog

When I started street photography, I first came across the street photography collective in-public. They do regular interviews on their blog, and are always a great source of inspiration.

Shooter Files

I came across F.D. Walker’s blog on street photography — Shooter Files totally by chance. I love how he has bridged street photography and travel photography so well, as well as his enthusiasm and passion. He has great shots and insights, make sure to check him out.

  1. While I do like 85MM Street Blog, the one I regularly visit and read is Eric Kim Street Photography. It is not self serving for me to admit this. Your’s is the one blog I visit more than the rest. It is from your blog that I not only see and learn the aspects of street photography but you always bring up, like this post, other sites for us to visit as well. That would put yours at the top of my list.

  2. Severin Koller is NICE with the camera! I really noticed his work AND approach in Chris Weeks’ documentary, using film and digital. And, of course, 85mm, using wit to spread his photographic wisdom. Also, unmentioned but featured in this blog, is the weekend photographer Danny Santos and his site http://www.dannyst.com.

      1. Ahaha thanks for adding me, Eric. And yes, I really should update more often :)

        And thanks for the recommendation, Sepia :)

  3. Thanks for this list Eric, will check them out. I am curious as to why there isn’t any blogs here run by women? I’m interested to know if there are any good female street photographers :)

    1. check out Louise Fryer. Not sure if she has a blog, i don’t think so but she is on Flickr and is admin (with me) of a Fb SP group. and has a couple of other sites as well…just google her..I like her work very much

  4. Danny Santos is the reason I got into photography in general. I’ve always held the belief that people aren’t what they wear, they’re not how much money they have in the bank, how big their house is, how fancy their car is, or their job. Street photography & portraiture take all of that way. We don’t know anything about these people, what school they go to, how much they make, what type of family they come from, or how many half baths their house has. We see a person, and that’s it. It humanizes them. Too often first world countries overlook the person, and instead see their material possessions. As a society, we need to get away from that.

    I do candid street photography and street portraiture because it takes away the material world. It makes people, people.

  20. I am a newby Mr. Kim – I have been reading everything I can get my hands on about PHOTOGRAPHY ( of many types I had never knew existed !!! ) and STREET PHOTOGRAPHY!!! I have been following quite a few good people from G+ Communities and also bugging them and old friends by asking many questions . The moment I actually shot my first pictures was when I knew good or bad I will continue to take my photos in the street. I think I have just found a new replacement for that mezmerizing behavior we used to call ” Mall Watching ” . You know or you may be too young to remember when we would rest on a bench in the busy inside shopping malls with Mama while she rest her feet and we licked Bubble Gum ice cream from Baskin Robbins and literally stared at people in the Mall walking everywhere. Mama would say don’t stare when a child was crying from dropping his recent sugar cone filled with Vanilla. I would wonder if the little boy’s Mama would let him have another . Soon we would see the answer was , ” No”! The story in my head would then turn to a girl and boy holding hands and walking into the arcade together . How sweet I would think . I wonder when I will have a boyfriend ? Just think of all of the snaps we could capture sitting there for 5 minutes ? Wow! Strangers on a whole disc with each having their individual look and effects in time . That’s street focus for me in this incident , but there is SO MUCH MORE ! Your Blog is fantastic ! I feel like I just found the ” Treasure Map” to find the pot ‘o gold . I found your name by chance from G + as mentioned to be the best to learn this creative photography genre. My first attraction to the unusual style was my favorite Victor Bezrukov in TelAviv . I found him on G+ years ago and have followed him all the way here. I am a storyteller or writer some may say depended on what my job is first and my dreams are afterwards . So the creativity with photography is just a slight different burst . I will be reading old posts and new from here and I sincerely thank you for your patience and generosity with your gifts. Not many remember where true happiness is derived ! 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

  36. NEW YORK –If a “selfie” is the first picture you take at this New
    York Public Library photography exhibition, you’re doing it right. Walk through
    the entrance, and the goading mirror above reflects a mantra fixed under your
    feet: “I am in the public eye.”

    It’s one of several ideas the library’s curator of photography, Stephen C.
    Pinson conveys in the “Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing of New York photography. The
    goal, he said, is to look at the history of photography through the
    contemporary lens of social media.
