Daily life photos,street photography. Searching order in kaos, looking for surreal and absurd in reallife.
Your photographs are only limited by your imagination.
"Street Photography mainly helps me to understand that similarities between human beings are actually more than I was told."
I am Peppe Di Donato and I was born in Naples in 1966. I am an engineer and I started taking pictures in 2012 when I realized that it was necessary for me to leave everything, my city, my home, some memories. So, I started travelling for work choosing a D7000 for friend. First of all Dubai, then Indonesia, Singapore, a brief period in Milan and then Angola, Saudi Arabia, Netherlands and now in Belgium.
I chose the street photography because there is always something to discover and to capture in one shot. Street photography documents emotions, relationships, everyday events where people are protagonists. That's what I try to communicate with my shots: faces, moods and expressions that otherwise couldn’t be reminded.
I am not a professional photographer, I think everyone can find something interesting to photograph in any place. Obviously, I love Naples! Naples is an open-air theatre and is perfect for street photography, but actually, I return back to my town just as a tourist.

Mark Guider is a photographer with a bad case of wanderlust, traveling around the United States (usually in his converted FBI surveillance van), photographing whatever he finds interesting. Ultimately he is on a quest to create Street in any major city he can get to.
"With Street photography I don't have a choice. I must accept what I am given."
I’m originally from Glasgow but based now in Basel, five years ago I bought my first digital camera and started soon after to shoot Street Photography which has become my love and my passion these past years. I usually work close up and candidly, seeking out those people and moments which say something about our cities streets, and, how we live and interact in them.
In the last year I’ve been shooting in Basel, Paris, Istanbul and Tokyo. I was fortunate to meet up with other excellent street photographers which was a new experience for me after years of being on a solo mission. This experience is helping to grow my ideas about Street Photography and to try new and different ideas in my own work.
I’ve been working in a professional photo studio for four years now and also working as an editor and contributor at EYE-Photo magazine.
"Street Photography for me is a natural expression of my love of people and their cities, tiny fragments of their life stories captured in one fleeting instant, the vibrance and emotion of the street, it lifts me up and drags me down and shakes my emotions all around, no other type of photography holds my attention like street."
You can see my photographs online and I’m planning an exhibition later this year in Basel.
I'm still seeking my best photograph. And to do so, I travel the world as much as I can, photographing people on their turf in their own environment. Doing so pushes me out of my comfort zone and typically results in photographs that are authentic and genuine.
I am Karlo Flores, a radiographer and a visual artist based in Davao City, Philippines. It was in 2015 when I started playing my camera in the streets. Since then I have been taking snapshots of scenes in public and that has always given me inexplicable excitement.
My photographs come from a genuine desire to express the emotions that I felt during the time I was taking the shots.
I believe that there are two moments that are pivotal in a street photographer’s life: the moment one starts street photography and the moment one finally understands why he is doing this.
World Street Photography
I started shooting street around 2010 during my undergraduate engineering studies in India, after being deeply moved by the work of Raghu Rai, Henri Cartier Bresson and Elliott Erwitt. The deep sense of aesthetics in their photographs, while being strongly rooted in a fleeting 'moment', showed how life in all its simplicity is beautiful. It embodied serendipity. I began to feel that the act of freezing a moment of time within the confines of a frame is transformative, as much for the scene, as for the viewer who connects with it.
This has been my driving force, and I have grown to love the long hours of aimlessly walking through city streets with a camera, always on the lookout for an interesting story. I then moved to the Netherlands in 2012 to continue my studies, where I now am a PhD student in Applied Physics at Delft. Aside from my research, I have shot extensively in the Netherlands and during my travels around Europe and India. Street has been my way of discovering new places and its people. What I like most about it is the triumph of the unknown, as these photographs really cannot be 'planned' and are 'out there' for the one who cares to see. Even though most of the times I miss more than I end up capturing, the fact that I saw a glimpse of order in the chaos of urban life is deeply satisfying, and addictive!
With street, I have discovered that there are streaks of similarity that paint all our lives. It has also helped induce in the seemingly mundane an element of possibility, which has given me an abiding interest in all life around me. It is now a defining aspect of my life.
My name is Inés Madrazo Delgado, I was born in Spain on 04/18/1979 and I graduated in medicine specializing in cardiology later.
Photography had always been a passion and a pending subject, in 2016 I bought my first SLDR camera and started my career as an amateur photographer.
A Philippine-born living in Ottawa, the nation’s capital of Canada, Alexander loves painting and photography. At an early age, he delved in sketching, drawing and painting already. He had garnered several awards in painting, though, he had not had any formal training in it. People said that he was a natural born artist.
A twin tower of this love for art of Alexander is photography. He is so passionate about photography. Like painting, photography allows him to create and manipulate an image floating in his mind. This also allows him to share what he thinks is beautiful and interesting to others and make them think and feel about his work. That’s what he enjoys most!
Like other serious photographers, Alexander continually challenges himself to improve and revitalize his photography skills and styles and keep up with the trends and development. He devotes himself into learning not only the technical aspect of photography but the styles and ways of composing and creating an image, as well.He hones his skills through reading a multitude of books and magazines and watching video tutorials on YouTube. Likewise, through the mentorship of the New York Institute of Photography, the largest and oldest photography school in North America, he learned so many techniques and styles that have contributed immensely to make his images better and better. In addition, he attended workshops and seminars mentorshipped by well-experienced photographers where he further acquired numerous tips and tricks of the trade.
Alexander’s journey to photographic excellence doesn’t stop here. He believes that photography is a continues learning process. Hence, he continues to develop and enhance his skills through constant practice.
Among the genres of photography, one that really made him crazy, constantly challenged him and where his adrenalin soars high is street photography.
There is something in shooting strangers in public places that resonate with him more than any other kind of photography. This simply suits his personality, he believes. Being a human rights activist, he cares deeply about humanity. He is so interested in the life of the people, how they interact with their surroundings, what are their feelings, attitudes, interests and issues they are involved in. Yes, in this genre he has found himself enjoying two worlds—-that of street photography on one hand, and activism, on the other. As a street photographer, he tries that his images portray social conditions but not engaging in poverty porn. He is happy when his photographs are used as a tool to provoke discussion, leading to social change. Namaste!
