A sneak-peek from Jeroen Swolfs' book and travelling exhibition

In a herculean effort, Belgian photojournalist Jeroen Swolfs set out several years ago to search for that one street to photograph in almost every country of the world. He scanned every nook and cranny for a sight that best represented the soul, culture and personality of that country. The journey which began in Chisinau, Moldova, explores universal themes like friendship, love, work, family, resilience and brotherhood. To convey a sense of how these pictures are connected, the same technique was used to shoot every street: a 16mm lens, an aperture between 8 and 13, ensuring a high depth of field, and ISO of 200, and always the same point of view. Swolfs now presents his work in the form of a book and travelling exhibition, Streets of the World.
