ABOUT STREETFOTO 2016
StreetFoto is an annual international festival that aims to be the world's largest event dedicated entirely to the art of street photography. Their inaugural gathering from June 8-12 features exhibits, awards, workshops, parties, pub-crawls, portfolio reviews, photowalks, lectures, film screenings, gallery openings, book signings, and contest curation by internationally-known photographers from around the world.
This is an ongoing project that began while commuting on San Francisco’s city trains and buses. Amy is looking for beauty found in the moments where we are neither here nor there.
Now Here Nowhere
The images in Now Here/Nowhere examine the geographic space of the everyday world, and the boundaries of what can be known about the world we inhabit. They highlight the collision of disparate elements in otherwise ordinary places, reflecting Ben's own feelings of being lost in an ambiguous world.
Troy has spent the past few years walking a 5 or 6 block stretch of Mid Market Street, shooting before and after work with the occasional lunchtime break. On the weekends he spends up to 2-3 hours per day hitting the streets - these are the results of those walks.
The Night Vision
Shweta is obsessed with life stories; particularly unsettling and mystifying are those that happen after sunset. What enchants her in these dark shadows and alleyways are how the lives of bouncers, strippers, inebriated crowds and bus drivers all come to coexist in the night ecosystem.
