The Street Photography Luxembourg” (SPL) collective is happy to invite you to its third Slide Night’ which will take place on October 8th in the new Rotondes. The collective will present slideshows of its eight members, as well as those of guests chosen among its friends and followers. Join us for a journey across Luxembourg’s streets at the encounter of its people living their daily lives or celebrating life at the fullest. A street photographer feels the faint pulse of the streets and aspires to capture those fleeting moments that pass in the blink of an eye when light, architecture, people and movement come together. Most pictures are made spontaneously; they freeze decisive moments that are sometimes poetic, other times empathetic and sometimes even enraging, but they most often capture the feeling of a particular place at a very particular moment.
A bit like with Jazz music, the street photographer improvises when out in the streets. He tries to blend in with his urban surroundings and lets his emotions guide him to show the emotion of the vibrant city that is all around him.
The Street Photography Luxembourg collective was created in March 2013 to provide a more accurate and broader visibility to a form of photography that is spontaneous and captures the atmosphere of the streets. Street Photography is as old as photography itself and has been marked deeply by mythical photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau and Sabine Weiss in France, or Saul Leiter, Vivian Maier and Gary Winogrand in the United States. With the surge of the digital age and the Internet, street photography has known a worldwide increasing success these past few years.
The eight photographers of the SPL collective are:
Paul Bintner, Candi Carrera, Veronique Fixmer, Paulo Lobo, Dirk Mevis, Christophe Van Biesen, Jeff Mouton and David Phillips.
