By Siegfriend Hansen
Street photography exists as a genre in incredibly many facets and manifestations. It is always about the right time to release the shutter, at a moment that captures and accurately re° ects what is ° eeting and coincidental. For Siegfried Hansen, street photography is not so much in the nature of reportage and documentation. What he is interested in is graphic elements, shapes, interwoven lines and structures that, when harmoniously related to one
another, yield an abstract image. Whereas in the photographs of such prominent role models as André Kertész and Ernst Haas people play a major role, in the works of this Hamburg photographer faces and people are only suggested and are at best only dimly visible. No more is shown than is needed to create an interesting and balanced combination of people and objects.

When The Line Grows Thick

Siegfried Hansen:This time the choice was very very hard to make, the level of photography was incredably high! In my first selection I had over 50 great images selected. For the quality of the photos with crossings and other great graphical photos was just too good to select the 7 bests I left them out. Almost all photos where at a very high level.
The first (and also second) curators choice caught my eye already at the first time I saw it. One can interpret a lot in this photo.. .all triggered by the cross. Congratulations to this top Photo!

original German text:
Die Auswahl war dieses mal unheimlich schwer, das Niveau unglaublich hoch. Hatte in meiner ersten Auswahl über 50 gute Bilder mit einem Screenshot rausgesucht. Ich habe bewusste die ganzen Zebrastreifen Bilder ( oder ähnliche grafische Bilder) nicht in die ersten 7 reingenommen . Da waren fast alle auf einem hohen Niveau, so das ich keinem richtig gerecht werden würde. Das Gewinner Bild fiel mir bei der ersten Durchsicht sofort auf genauso wie Platz 2 . Man kann sehr viel in das Gewinnerbild hinein interpretieren .. ausgelöst durch das Kreuz. Gratulation zu diesem Topbild !



Second curator's choice
Congratulations Osvaldo Mirante!

Siegfried Hansen:The second curators choice offers a lot of colors, a division of areas and adds a final touch with the silhouette of a human. This photo got into my top 3 choices immediately!

original German text: Der zweite Platz besticht durch seine Farben und die Aufteilung der Flächen und als i Tüpfelchen die Silhouette des Menschen . Es war sofort unter den ersten 3 in meiner Auswahl.

Siegfried Hansen: A great Black and Whit photo . graphical and dynamic . Greatly shot, and because of the motion blur the entire photo gets a great abstraction and divides the body into a triangle.

original German text: Ein tolles Schwarz-weiß Bild . Grafik und Dynamik . Sehr gut getroffen und durch die Bewegungsunschärfe bekommt das ganze eine Abstraktion , so das sich der Körper in viele Dreiecke auflöst.



Congratulations Eduardo Kaminski!
