Swiss photographer Thomas Leuthard is widely considered a rising star in the global street photography scene. His values closely align with those of this group’s leadership, and thanks to alert and tuned-in group member Rafael Vida, we are pleased to present the free e-books Leuthard has published. They are available as .PDFs via the following links:
Going Candid (link)
Collecting Souls (link)
The Art of Candid Street Portraiture (link)
In addition to these treasures, Rafael has provided a link to the grainy, contrasty work of Alex Coghe via his e-book “Street Photography”:

Make no mistake; this is a treasure-trove of information. Take it in slowly, a page at a time. Give each photographer a little time to impress you, for the lessons to sink in. There is NO GREAT HURRY.
