Mobile Photography – StreetsAhead – Tribute to Arjan van der Horst Challenge Results

Share

This challenge showcase was devoted to our Arjan van der Horst who we tragically lost not so long ago. The challenge was to use the Arjan film (created by the Hipstamatic team in honour of Arjan) to capture images in the way we knew he would from the wonderful images he left us to remember him by. The four images I have selected I feel best capture the spirit and style of our dear friend. 

With many congratulations and huge thanks to Paula Betlem, FrauLN, Karen Axelrad, Christine Mignon, Gillian Brodie, Giulia Baita, Armineh Hovanesian, Montse Abad, Patricia Januszkiewicz, Ile Mont, Lee Atwell, Heather McAlister, Gina Costa, Marsha Leith, Lila Lile, Cara Gallardo Weil and Tuba Korhan.

So many thanks also to Cara Gallardo Weil for curating this challenge and to Gina Costa for the text.

(We would like Streets Ahead to be and interactive group, and for members to try to participate in the challenge). If you are a woman street photographer, please join our growing community (see links below).
