Weekend of Mobile Photography with Cedric Blanchon from France

Share

This weekend Cedric Blanchon, an Award Winning Mobile Photographer chronicles his enviable junket with us. Viewing his text and images, I feel almost as if I am observing an impressionistic diary, rediscovering the joy of photographing the streets without a plan or project, with Blanchon by my side. I feel the energy within the captures, each person within every frame is subtly photographed, visual clues, hand movements, facial expressions are given a meaning.

If you would like to review others that we have published in our Weekend series, please go here. For now, enjoy! (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“I’m waiting for the weekend impatiently, I’m doing a hard job that has nothing to do with the world of art and photography, that’s why at the weekend I rest, I play sports, I play with my children and I edit a few photos or think about some series.

I have just returned from a two-day trip to Rouen, the city where Jeanne D’arc was burn, a beautiful city where I could do lots of street photography”.

Mob-Entrepreneurs – Lonesome City: A Fine Art Book – KickStarter with David Ingraham

Share

We created our Mob-Entrepreneurs section many moons ago, this is a select area and we only choose to mention projects that we truly believe in.  It reflects the work of mobile photographers and artists who are pushing the boundaries of their talent into other areas. This could be workshops, app development, exhibitions anything that draws in others to our magical world.

This time we are featuring a KickStarter project by a very talented mobile street photographer, David Ingraham. He has created a book ‘Lonesome City’ that he describes as culmination of over five years of extensive photo-shooting in the streets of Los Angeles as well as other cities around the globe’. Ingraham goes on to explain that ‘this collection of images can be viewed as a visual meditation on the universal theme of urban isolation and disconnection’. I think that’s a theme that will appeal to many and can be the very reason that people spend time interpreting images.

Conceptualised and designed by the photographer, this book will be produced in an edition of 700 copies, printed in rich duotone on high-end matt paper with a printed-wrap hardcover. (75 copies will be made available as special limited collector’s editions.)

Ingraham has set a target of $22,000 and so far he has reached $7,555 of this goal with 92 backers and 23 days to go. Pledging $175 will result in one signed and numbered limited Collector’s Edition of Lonesome City as well as a custom-printed and signed 7×7 archival pigment print. There are plenty of higher and lower pledges available. If you would like to find out more about this project, please go here.

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – New! Eleventh Challenge – ‘Shooting from the Knees’

Share

 

We do not take pictures, we are taken by pictures”  Ernst Haas

Forget ‘shooting from the hip’, the theme of our next challenge is ‘shooting from the knees’.

Sometimes, as street photographers, we may find ourselves feeling a little stagnant and we may desire to travel away from our usual environment (a new town or city) to find fresh inspiration. However, when that is not possible, changing our perspective can offer a refreshing change.

For this next challenge, we invite you to get low – squat, kneel, lye of the earth, put your mobile phone on the ground – but, have your camera lower than your knees (or thereabouts) and shoot from that level, or, turn your camera upwards and shoot ‘up.’

We hope you enjoy this theme and look forward to seeing your results!

A recap of our rules and procedure for entry:

For the challenge please only post FOUR photographs to our Flickr challenge site on the link below, and in your title or description include ‘Shooting from the Knees’

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – Tenth Challenge – ‘Lines in the Street’

Line is a rich metaphor for the artists…” Lance Epslund

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our Tenth StreetWise Challenge Showcase  ‘Lines in the Street.’ We are thrilled to share it with you!

Thank you so much for participating and sharing your wonderful photographs. Lee and I were delighted by all the beautiful submissions to this fun challenge. Lines denote so many things in photography, boundary, edge, or contour — it is the agent for energy and movement and it was wonderful to see the many ways in which people incorporated lines in their photographs

As always, Lee and I hope you enjoy the showcase as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying too much on apping. or images that are more art-oriented or painterly.

If you are a mobile street photographer, please consider joining our growing community.

To those new to our street photography community, welcome – it is great to have you join us!
