Broadway is New York City’s longest street — running the full length of Manhattan up to the Bronx — passing through and connecting some of the world's most fascinating neighborhoods. In this weekend workshop, we'll photographically explore different parts of this famous street that you might not know, with its rich tapestry of architecture, street action, and cultures. This workshop will also be a good opportunity to meet in person and photograph with other StrudelmediaLive students you may know only on Zoom.

Fri, October 20: 1-3pm (ET)

A special curated gallery tour with StrudelmediaLive community, followed by a social get-together.

Sat/Sun, October 21/22: 10am–5pm (ET)

In its journey through Manhattan, Broadway passes through a vibrant array of wildly different neighborhoods. On this curated tour you’ll discover the Caribbean and Black neighborhood of West Harlem (including a stop at the beautiful and under-appreciated Hispanic Society Museum with its stunning collection of paintings by El Greco, Goya, Velásquez and more). We'll visit the dense and bustling food mecca of Koreatown, explore the area around the iconic Madison Square Park, and on to the explosion of color at the world-famous Union Square Greenmarket. In Lower Manhattan we'll check out the crazy intersection at Broadway and Canal Street, where Chinatown meets the chic Tribeca neighborhood. All along the way, you'll find some of the most interesting and beautiful historic and classic architecture found in New York City. We'll do a lot of walking, but for longer distances, we'll travel on the Broadway Subway line.

Activities on both days will be held outdoors as much as possible.

Sun, October 29: 12–3pm (ET)

The following Sunday, we’ll meet online to discuss and critique your fresh NYC images.


Please note: Make sure to wear good shoes because we'll be walking a good amount.
Thank you for all your guidance and patience with my project. There were some terrific students/talent in the class and you did a great job getting everyone to participate!

Anja's live online classes provided an intimate and safe space where I felt comfortable to present and discuss my work with other students, thus traning me for presenting my work outside of class. The assignments coupled with class critiques taught me how to formulate my point of view of other people's work, and to continue learning about things such as composition and sequencing. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is committed to advancing their photography, or who might need a little push and new prespective on where to take their work.
