[This Challenge Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Ile Mont. Every few weeks Mont reviews and curates work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, we create a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we also highlight a few images that have caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition and subject matter.

If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us! This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) regarding mobile portraiture and portraiture in general.

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – First Challenge Results

Share

Welcome to our first ‘StreetWise’  monochrome challenge showcase honouring the roots of the incredible art of street photography! 

We looked at each photograph with care and consideration and are thrilled to share this video with you. Ilana and I hope you enjoy seeing this compilation of photos by our wonderful street photography community. (Please feel free to invite others to the group that you feel may be interested, also).

Many congratulations to the following artists for being featured:

Allyson Marie, Kate Zari Roberts, Giulia Baita, Ile Mont, Dina lfs, Maurizio Zanetti, Gillian Brodie, Jo Sullivan, Gina Costa, Ocean Morisset, Christine Mignon, Deena Berton, Vanessa Vox, Gergely Hando, Connie Gardner Rosenthal, Liliana Schwitter, Susan Rennie, Sukru Mehmet Omur, Stef L.P.

Our intention for the challenges is to inspire and be inspired, and in this unique and eclectic art form, we hope that our challenges might provide an opportunity to see the streets around you in new ways, to take photos from perspectives you are not used to, to perhaps also support one another in developing confidence (one of the challenges of street photography that is often expressed by those newer to the field), and that we can come together from around the world to share our passion.

For curating the first four photos, we chose from those that were submitted specifically to this challenge and taken within that time period, as well.

In the future, we will choose only photos for the showcase that have been submitted to the specific Flickr ‘StreetWise’ challenge group (flickr)  and that have been labeled and taken within the current challenge timeframe so that we will be showcasing new work inspired by our themes.

Please also join our Facebook forum group for fabulous interactive chats and information here.

“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.” Henri Cartier-Bresson
