Inspired by the Follow Friday hashtag movement on twitter we started a new weekly feature on our blog. With Follow Friday posts you can discover new, popular and up-and-coming photographers from 500px to follow and add to friends.
Wenpeg Lu's photos are full of colour and great composition, framing his subjects with a clever use of negative space. Anyone with love for visual arts will enjoy and appreciate Wenpeng's photography.
Christophe presents street photography to us through quirky black and white portraits of passers by. Some of them will really make you laugh and some will make you wonder "Will I be this much fun when I get old?"
In his street photos Alexander focuses on stay animals, mostly cats and dogs. Showing to us the reality of their survival, poor and starved yet holding on together. Alexander's portfolio also offers a range of staged street photography and fine art photos that provide contrast and reinforce the image of stray animals.
Explore the day-to-day human narrative with beautifully balanced b&w and colour photos of Italian life. Emanuele has a great eye for capturing just the right moments, when all is candid and natural.
Immerse yourself in the world of street photography where the story of one is told over and over again, as though you are following the same character through different streets and adventures. Eric Drigny is a great narrator, cleverly selecting a frame with one person at a time he is able to share this charming story of one with us.
If you love Street photography that's reminiscent of the early classic street photos then David Mar Quinto is your man. He really knows his craft, capturing great moments from unique angles (our favourite is bird's eye view).
Journey to the wonderful asia with photos by Michael Steverson and we trust your trip will be one to remember! The photos you are about to see are bursting with smells, flavour and texture. Just remember that not all is Street, there are some fine art photos too.
We love Fokko Muller's work for so many reasons and one of them is his sense of design. Learn to see graphically with Fokko Muller's photography observing as he defines each shape, shadow, and line with his photographs.
Mind-blowing travel street photography anyone? You may have already visited asia with photos by Michael Steverson (see above), now you can travel the streets of the world with photos by Mimmo Pellicola. The tickets are free, just click below.
An encounter with a homeless girl changed Lee Jeffries’ direction of photography, now his photos mostly consist of emotive and heart breaking portraits. Lee doesn’t walk away from people on the street whom the majority of us would turn away from, instead he greets, strikes a conversation and captures the essence of that person or persons.
