Create Your Own Style in Street Photography

Street photography has grown and rebelled against dogmas. It’s time for your own style.

Certainly the answers could be diverse, different from one to another.

One of the most general reasons is its practicality. Street photography is easy to do. We just go out and interact with public spaces around us. All the places offer different stories and interactions making the street photography not expensive. Wo don’t need to go far away by plane to find its subjects, and also don’t need to buy expensive photography equipments.

I myself knew street photography because of my curiosity and I wanted to try something new. It was the beginning before I then explored and felt that there was something interesting in the genre.

Little Kids and Their Big Dogs

Little Kids and Their Big Dogs
by Andy Seliverstoff

andyseliverstoff12a andyseliverstoff12b andyseliverstoff12c andyseliverstoff12d andyseliverstoff12eFrom hugely popular photographer Andy Seliverstoff of St. Petersburg, Russia, comes this utterly charming collection of just what the titles says — little kids and the big dogs they love.

Through the prism of Seliverstoff’s magic lens, impossibly big dogs (Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Leonbergers, Newfoundlands, Irish Wolfhounds, to name a few) and some rare ones (like Komondorok and Bracchi Italiani) telegraph the special relationships they have with the children in their lives.

“The state of endless joy and mutual confidence – that has become the main idea of the series,” Seliverstoff says.

“Je suis allongé dans l’herbe, en attente du passage d’un éléphant. Il arrive quand l’orage s’annonce au fond. Une symétrie parfaite. On aurait dit que le temps était suspendu face à ce spécimen majestueux.”
