"On March 21st, I was one of over 2000 street photographers around the world participating in this year’s 24 Hour Project who walked the streets shooting for 24 hours, posting a photo every hour on instagram. As described by its founders, Sam Smotherman and Renzo Grande, the project aims to document and share the human condition around the world in real time. This was the event’s 4th edition; I’ve participated every year since its inception.
It’s quite a challenge to get from midnight to midnight - physically, emotionally and creatively, there are ebbs and flows that you only have partial control over. I like to think that I’ve been getting better at anticipating low points both in terms of my energy, my iPhone’s energy, and the energy of the city streets. Plotting out a route to take you through the day only goes so far. We’ve found that having a general plan and remaining open to improvisation and change is the best way to approach the task. Shooting with friends also provides safety, support and an extra layer of fun.
As in past years, this year I shot exclusively with Hipstamatic and Oggl as we made our way from the Lower East Side to Penn Station, Times Square, Central Park, the Museum of Modern Art, Bushwick and Soho, to name a few notable stops. Some of the photos in this portfolio are not ones I chose in the moment to post during the day – you can see more of my day on instagram in my stream, @shelserkin. Be sure also to check out @24hourproject and for more information about the event and to see a curated stream of photos from around the world. "

"And who will care, who will chide you if you wander away from wherever you are, to look for your soul?" Mary Oliver

​"I was drawn to the streets of the city recently to capture the winter light as I find taking photos in the city to be a very meditative practice that forces me to be present moment to moment, step by step. I enjoy wandering without a destination in mind, not being attached to outcomes (very few of the hundreds of photos I take in the streets are worth keeping), following the ever changing light and shadows. The AO BW Film and Wonder Lens are my favorite as I like how this combo creates and highlights strong contrasts, and also maintains clarity in details."
Lee Atwell


'My San Francisco' by Scott Strazzante

ScottStrazzante_portraitName: Scott Strazzante
Hometown: Chicago
Resides: San Francisco
Profession: Chicago Tribune staff photographer

Hipstographer since: December 2011
Year of Birth: 1964

Favorite Combo:  John S  +  BlacKeys SuperGrain

Favorite Flash: None

"After a half century in Chicago, last July, I relocated to San Francisco. I have traveled the World during my career as a photojournalist, but I had always resided in America’s Midwest. Chicago was a wonderful place for street photography, but I have found San Francisco to be a much more vibrant and bustling city. There is a lot more room to breathe in 'The Windy City' and the people tend to be more conservative, while, on the other hand, SF is compact and crazy. For me, street photography is all about layers and in 'The City by the Bay', everything and everybody is stacked on top of each other.
Another plus for San Francisco is the amazing light. With fewer skyscrapers than Chicago, there is a lot more sunlight to play with in SF. Despite its smaller size, there are still many more places in San Francisco that I have yet to explore and photographically exploit."

Scott Strazzante
