I started the year by highlighting “7 Instagram Street Photographers To Follow In 2017,” a collection of my favorite shooters I had discovered the year prior. And by “discovered,” I strictly meant found for myself: the first shooter on the list, Aaron Berger, currently has over 37 thousand followers, and the list average is nearly 20 thousand. Perhaps not everyday names, but certainly not unearthed by me from some neglected corner of the internet.
Moving forward, though, I want to continue spotlighting street photographers I come across on the app, with an emphasis on shooters sharing great work with relatively smaller followings. Here’s such a photographer: Alex Ledford. Around March of this year, it seems he shifted his account from personal sharing to a street photography focus.
