Thomas Leuthard: overgifted contemporary streetThomas Leuthard is a citizen of the world. I discovered him on Flickr.Thomas Leuthard: overgifted contemporary street by PatriceChesse
His gallery : https://www.flickr.com/photos/thomasleuthard/sets/
I like the direct looks straight to the camera. The sign of a great humanist and a great artist.
Very graphical with a deep b&w, I was strucked by the power of his images.
Rinzi Ruiz: fascinating streets of Los AngelesA Los Angeles-based photographer, Rinzi studied Fine Arts at Pasadena Community College, then went on to attend the Art Institute of Los Angeles.

Following his graduation, Rinzi worked at Technicolor in its DVD and Blu-ray production facility for 10 years, advancing from designer to project manager and ultimately becoming a manager and art director.

Pavel Kosenko: streets for pleasureI first discovered Pavel Kosenko through his Russian website http://www.pavel-kosenko.livejournal.com. No, I can’t read Russian but Pavel is a blogger and photo discoverer himself. I came upon his post from another post of “4 x 5″ Kodachrome slides of the American war effort during World War 2.

CastawayTranslating and sharing with you this beautiful italian article by Michele Smargiassi about Garry Winogrand. Source: http://smargiassi-michele.blogautore.repubblica.it/2013/06/07/il-naufrago-delle-immagini/Castaway by myraincheck
