Bob Patterson, publisher of Street Photography Magazine developed a love for photography through his fascination with the black and white photos in Life and Look magazines as a child. After a career as an executive in the cable television industry, he founded Street Photography Magazine in 2013. His mission is to create a digital platform that gives street and documentary photographers the ability to showcase their work to a worldwide audience. As a photographer, Bob practices what he calls “real-life” photography, documenting life on the streets and stories of people in Central Virginia and beyond. He is also a life-long martial artist, avid traveler and curious to a fault.
Street photography is like the truth. It’s imperfect, messy, sometimes uncomfortable and usually very personal. When it’s good, the viewer feels something, whether it’s something positive or disturbing.
A strong street photo challenges the viewer to stop, look, think, feel and ask “why do I care?” It causes the viewer to return again and again because a subliminal aspect of the image resonates with their own life experience.
My selections reflect three criteria. First the strength of the visual elements of the images like composition, exposure, graphical elements, color, monochrome toning and so on. Second, does the photo tell a story and if so, what is it and how well is it communicated. And third, the most subjective element, the feelings or questions the image arouse in me personally.
The quality of the work submitted made my job very difficult and quite enjoyable. My sincere thanks to everyone who contributed their work. The stories told by your photos are very personal and we all appreciate you sharing them with the world. Thank you for your allowing us to experience your vision. It was an honor to serve as the juror this year. – Bob Patterson
