STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
by
RUUD LEEUW


My focus in photography, and in general interests, shifts and wanders.. A few years ago, around 2012 I became more interested in photography's 'greats' and found myself more frequently visiting photo exhibitions and buying photobooks.
Photographers such as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Robert Frank, John Margolies, Arnold Newman, Anton Corbijn, Steve McCurry, Werner Bischof, Annie Leibovitz, Marc Riboud, etc., took my interest. Photobooks were bought and in subsequent years I started actively collecting 'art' photobooks.
I found myself less interested in portraits and landscapes and gradually my interest was steered to photojournalism and streetphotography. Or maybe the term 'humanist photographer' is best applied here.

In the last two years streetphotography began to take up a large portion of my travel photography. In 2016 I bought a Fujifilm X100T camera for dedicated 'streetphotography'. Soon replaced by a Panasonic Lumix G (DMC-GX80) and in 2020 I bought a secondhand Leica Q (and compare it with the Pana).
Perhaps the title of 'Humanist Photography' (wikipedia) is more appropriate to my work.
The images were/are shared on my travel pages, Blog and Flickr & Facebook accounts.
In Sep.2016 I started a B&W streetphotography page, followed in August 2020 by colour work on that subject.
Again followed by Photographers & musicians (street) in March 2021.
