'Transit' by André Feltes
"This is a series of pictures I took in the center of Porto Alegre, a city located in the south of Brazil. They represent zones of passage, transit, flow, where only traces, shadows and small human details are revealed. Almost like another city, almost like another place; a private world created between light and shadow."
'On the streets of Helsinki and Prague' by Tanu Kallio
"I’ve always been inspired by the old classic style of street photography. Hipstamatic is an easy and fast way to produce the right look, feel and spirit. Also, the smartphone is a perfect tool for documenting daily life on the streets. It’s always with you and it allows almost perfect invisibility.
This series was made during a long walk trough my hometown of Helsinki, Finland and on a short trip to Prague, Czechoslovakia, documenting interesting people and scenes."
'Puro Norte' by Ramón Cruz
"As a documentary photographer it is very important to pay attention to the local culture and its symbolism, in order to make sense of the stories. This work is focused on the identity of the urban cowboy. For me, mobile photography is a powerful narrative tool for documenting the human condition and the social reality around us."

"Ahhh Cuba, the forbidden fruit. To live in The United States and have a country as raw, and colorful and original as Cuba right out your backdoor is astounding. Technically it is not quite legal or easy for Americans to visit this country. That's all about to change. It is this change - the fear of this change - that inspired my visit. The aspects that speak to me the most are the colors and the textures. I visualized old cars, bright buildings and bold people. Cuba is such a mystery at this point, I wanted to depict a clear strong simple interpretation of what I was seeing and capturing. On the first day, I chose the Jack London lens. I decided not to include a film for my original shots. I stuck with this choice for the entire trip. The bump in brightness and contrast worked well almost all of the time. I was shooting at all times of the day, in old buildings and I also made lots of pictures of people with darker skin. I loved everything about my trip and look forward to creating another series with a different look. So many images to play with and so many different sides of Cuba and it's people to see. Thanks Hipstamatic for inspiring my creative spirit and saving me from tons of post editing work. What I really love about this lens is that, at the end of the day, I don't usually end up doing a thing to the images."
'Mi Mexico Querido' by Adriana Zehbrauskas
"Come with me as I take you through the streets of this incredible city that has now become home - even though I know I'll always be a foreigner here. Photographing it is my way of claiming it..."

"It’s extremely difficult to do “Street Photography” in Marrakech, and there was I, planning a trip to Marrakech with the aim of doing a series of street portraits… The Moroccans do not want to be photographed and are quick to make that known! As soon as you try to take a picture of somebody, someone else will notice and point it out. You have to be very very discreet. The upside is that the pictures are not posed in any way and that gives the pictures a very spontaneous quality. I did, however, manage to get a gentleman to pose for me, as I would come across him every day. It’s the only real portrait I made during my trip to Marrakech. This entire series was captured with BlacKeys SuperGrain, paired with the John S lens."
'Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights' by Tanu Kallio
"In this street photography series I have captured the human condition in deep shadows and brilliant highlights; personal moments and stories in an urban environment. This series includes photos taken in Paris and in my hometown, Helsinki.
